How can we help?
It can be hard enough for young people growing up in today’s world without the additional challenges life can bring. From family problems to exam stress and peer pressure, body image anxiety to social media bullying, trying to get through life can be completely overwhelming. It can feel impossible to cope, and some young people can’t.
Youth Talk provides free, confidential counselling to 13-25 year olds in St Albans and surrounding areas, delivered by experienced professionals and without judgement. We’re determined that every young person has a safe place to talk in confidence, whatever’s on their mind.
We are proud of our strong reputation. For over 20 years, we have offered local young people a dedicated service, and the need has never been greater. Whatever a young person is going through, we take time to understand and respond.
As a parent, it can be incredibly difficult to watch your child struggle with the pressures of the 21st Century. All our counsellors are highly experienced in working with young people. We are trusted by health professionals to provide a vital service and many GPs across the St Albans area refer young people to Youth Talk.
Since 1997, 2800 young people have trusted Youth Talk to provide free, confidential and expert support from a dedicated team of experienced professionals. Our work is informed directly by young people through regular engagement with our community and our active Youth Panel, so we can be sure we’re supporting them in the best way possible.
Youth Talk is a community organisation for the community and driven by the community. We rely on our local community to back our work through donations, fundraising, volunteering and partnerships so we can support more young people who need someone to listen.
