An online digital counselling service for young people aged 11 – 18 has recently been commissioned by Wolverhampton Clinical Commissioning Group (WCCG).
Kooth will be delivering a free, safe, confidential and non-stigmatised way for young people aged 11-19 to receive counselling, advice and support on-line. Counselling sessions are available from 12pm until 10pm Monday to Friday, and 6pm until 10pm Saturday and Sunday.
The therapy team are qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who deliver evidence-based interventions. They deliver CBT, solution focused and humanistic approaches such as narrative and other relational therapies. The counsellors have clear pathways into others services too, ensuring the young person gains information needed and are signposted to the most appropriate provisions.
