As you can see from above, a lot of these places are free to call and are completely confidential. You are even able to get the confidential help through the phone, if you’re not comfortable doing it face to face.

These people are trained to deal with any situation and are there to help, guide or just be a listening ear for anyone who needs it. Remember, there is always someone you can turn to and no one should have to suffer alone!

If you would like any further information please feel free to email me on, everything emailed to me is confidential.
