Kooth Online Counselling Service

Kooth is an online counselling, advice and mental health support service for young people in Wigan aged 11-19

 As we are commissioned by Wigan CCG it is free for young people to use and is self-referral, meaning there is no need to visit a GP to access the service. Completely anonymous, it takes just a few minutes to sign up to the site where young people can then speak to fully qualified counsellors and therapists until 10pm, 365 days per year. There are also forums where young people can get peer based advice; these are all fully moderated by Kooth staff to ensure a safe and supportive environment. All counsellors are BACP accredited and police checked, and will continue to support young people for the duration they need. Kooth is also available in Manchester, Warrington, Bolton, Halton and Knowsley.
