Award winning online counselling for 11-25 year olds

Our counsellors have supported many thousands of young people via Kooth

A unique service that provides vulnerable young people, who have emotional or mental health problems, with support when they need it most.
Kooth was developed to provide PCTs, local authorities and GPs with the resource, expertise and support to provide help to young people most at risk and crucially, prevent them from entering the care system. It engages with hard-to-reach young people in a way that other services can't.
Kooth provides users with a free, confidential, safe and above all anonymous way to ask for help. It's currently available to over half a million 11-25 year olds in England and Wales and is now operational in 33 geographical areas.
Kooth is a transformational lifeline that has successfully helped and continues to reach the very vulnerable, many of whom would never have access to face-to-face counselling.
