Childline is here to help anyone under 19 in the UK with any issue they’re going through.
You can talk about anything. Whether it’s something big or small, our trained counsellors are here to support you.
Our counsellors are trained staff and volunteers. All sorts of people become Childline counsellors.
They’re all different ages and come from lots of different backgrounds. But what they all have in common is that they want to help young people.
A Childline counsellor:
- will listen to you and is genuine, open and friendly
- knows it takes courage to contact us and isn't easily shocked
- knows about the problems young people can face
- will let you take your time and won't judge you or put you down.
