Welcome to our page dedicated to you finding help when you need it.
Reaching out for help through counselling can be a difficult step for many people to take. And even if you have taken that first step, you may still be waiting to start your sessions and feel you need help in the meantime. If you cannot wait to see a doctor and feel unable to cope or keep yourself safe, it's important to get support. This is a list of just some of the organisations you can contact for support.
If you are in crisis and are concerned for your own safety, call 999, or go to A&E.
