Questions children may have
Counselling is an opportunity to talk about difficult feelings or experiences to someone who will listen to you. Counsellors are used to helping children with worries and other problems and may be able to help you to make sense of some of your thoughts and feelings. It will happen in a room at Cogwheel, which is in Cambridge. In the room there are various toys and arts and crafts that you can use to help you express how you feel.
Each session will last about 50 minutes (just under an hour). The first time you meet with your counsellor he or she will be able to give you an idea as to how many times you will come to Cogwheel. Once you have begun counselling you will see the same counsellor each week.
What you talk about is private and confidential. Your counsellor will not tell anyone what you talk about unless they are really worried that you may not be safe. If the counsellor does feel they need to talk to someone else about what you have said, they will always try and tell you first.
