…..and this video shows you what you’ll have access to :
Kooth allows young people to gain anonymous access to advice, support and guidance on any issue that is affecting their wellbeing. From friendship or relationship issues, family disagreements or difficult home lives, to concerns around eating, anxiety, stress, depression, self harm, suicidal thoughts etc.
Our qualified counsellors are here to give young people the support they need, when they need it. Kooth.com’s live chat service is available from Monday to Friday 12 noon – 10pm, Saturdays and Sundays 6pm – 10pm and is accessible through mobile, tablet and desktop, completely free of charge.
Our magazine has helpful articles, personal experiences and tips from young people and our Kooth team. You can also start or join a conversation with our friendly Kooth community, and you can write in your own daily journal to track your feelings or emotions and reflect on how you’re doing.
Kooth has been commissioned by NHS Cheshire Clinical Commisioning Group (CCG) in direct response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Hospice’s Family Support and Counselling Manager Chris Jackson said: “We’re making people aware of this new service in the hope to reach out to our community.
“It could help a patient or a family member anticipating death from a progressive illness, a Covid-19 loss or the loss of a loved one through illness during this awful time.”
Referral to the Hospice can be made via the Link Worker at your own GP Practice. A qualified team of therapists at St Luke’s will then provide professional psychological support for people either pre or post bereavement with up to 12 sessions via Zoom or telephone funded by the project.
The FIS has an online hub offering impartial information, advice and guidance for families with children and young people aged 0-25. This is a gateway to lots of potential sources of help.
Our service provides confidentiality on subjects including help with child care, the local offer for SEN and disability, money matters, youth support and lots more.
You can phone, email, online chat or fill in an electronic form, whichever you prefer.
So we’re here to provide emotional, personal and practical support and advice to everyone involved. We have supported families affected by domestic abuse for 40 years and we specialise in supporting people through the challenges they face. Please visit our Instagram page for our new booklets for teenagers and young people.
We offer a weekly drop in advice clinic, a monthly legal clinic and a range of groups offering recovery and support as well as a counselling service and specialist children’s programmes.
Maybe you have doubts about your relationship – or you’re feeling threatened or unsafe.
Perhaps you have concerns about your own behaviour. Or you might be worried about a friend or relative.
Whatever the reason, we have the right people, in the right place, at the right time to help you.
In Summer 2020 a group of domestic abuse survivors in Cheshire came together to write a poem that would…
Tell the world how it feels to live with an abuser
Tell other survivors they’re not alone
Show that there’s no “typical” victim
Provide hope for anyone who feels trapped
This poem was written by real women with real experiences of what being a domestic abuse survivor means to them.
Cheshire Without Abuse is based at: Lilly Jones Centre, Brook Street, Crewe, CW2 7DE
The service is confidential and is not time-session restricted but based on individual client’s needs. Survive is a small, independent registered charity – 1047103.
