Off The Record is a private and confidential source of help. This means we would only break confidentiality if we had reason to believe that someone is at serious risk of harm.
We will always discuss this first with you if we can, unless we believe that to do so could increase the level of risk to you or to someone else.
An assessment appointment plus 6 sessions of counselling with a counsellor. Counselling is a confidential and safe space, with weekly 40-50 minute sessions with the same counsellor each week.
These sessions help you think more clearly, make decisions or changes in your life, or come to terms with difficult experiences, both past and present. Depending on your needs and age, a counsellor may be qualified or a counsellor in training.
On average a counselling journey will last 6-8 weeks and occasionally depending on counsellor availability, some young people can benefit from more sessions up to a maximum of 18.
A 6-week programme around managing emotions, such as anxiety, stress, anger, relationships, low mood and self-care. A safe place to explore these emotions with a small group of other people who share feelings, experiences and coping mechanisms. It’s a place to normalise these emotions and let people know that they are not on their own.
Each week we look at a different emotion and explain why we have them and find ways of dealing with them together. People that have come to this group before have said it has really helped them, and that it was a relief to feel like they are not alone with how they are feeling. We offer this face to face at Leigh Park community centre and online through Zoom. Both ways have their advantages and suit different needs.

Please be aware:
If you wish to access counselling, and you are already receiving treatment or support from a mental health practitioner, then counselling may not be suitable for you at this time, as it is often unadvisable to receive different types of therapy at the same time.
If you have already received counselling with us recently then you will not be able to refer back into the counselling service for a period of 6 months from leaving us.
