Useful counselling services available

Unfortunately counselling isn’t an emergency service.  If you find yourself in crisis and need someone to talk to, the following services are available.

If you are feeling suicidal or have self harmed and are concerned about it, please dial 999, 111 or visit your nearest A+E department.

The Samaritans offer a 24/7 helpline for those needing to talk as well as useful information if you are worried about someone close to you.
