Therapeutic Counselling at YCT

Counselling is an opportunity to talk to someone in confidence, about anything that could be worrying you. This could be about a whole range of issues and connected with home, school, college, work, relationships, sexuality or just about how you are feeling about yourself.

Our trained and experienced counsellors are friendly and welcoming and won’t make judgements about you or your problems Counselling takes place through an appointment of around 50 minutes with the same counsellor every week, who will listen to you and help you explore how you are feeling. You decide if you would like counselling and how long you would like counselling for.

We offer a counselling service from a number of venues – at our own premises YCT House in the middle of Harlow, Occasio House in Harlow Town Centre, The Old Drill Hall in Cheshunt, Cheshunt Library and Bishop’s Stortford Library. If you are aged 11-25 and would like to speak to one of our counsellors about anything that is bothering you then please get in touch.
