Online or face-to-face counselling for children and young people

NEW!! Parent support and advice line

At TIC+ we’re here to support children and young people aged 9-21 and their families.

Every one of us is on a journey. For some, life might seem plain sailing but for many, the path can be a bit more bumpy. Maybe your life has hit a roadblock and you want to find a way out. Or you’re stuck at a crossroads and aren’t sure which way to turn.

Whatever your situation, you’re not alone:
• Your situation doesn’t have to stay as it is. There is always a solution.
• Although bad things can happen, you don’t have to let your past experiences or actions determine your future.
• There is a way through so never give up or give in to your circumstances.
• Often in difficult times it’s good to talk to someone you trust about how you feel.

At TIC+, we’re here to listen and help you get your life back on track. You can talk to us in confidence and we’ll never judge you. Contact us to get the support you need today.

Our Ethos

TIC+ is a Christian-led charity that is not affiliated to any particular denomination, church or group. We provide services to anyone of any faith (or none), and we employ staff from any faith (or none). As an organisation, we believe that the Christian faith provides the foundation and motivation for the work of the charity and is the reason why we do what we do. Our mission to improve, preserve and promote good mental health and well-being
amongst children, young people and families is borne from Jesus’ words; “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

The Christian faith is never made explicit in any of the services we provide. An outworking of our Christian ethos means that we expect all representatives of the charity to treat everyone equally, with care and respect regardless of their race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnic background, beliefs, status, ability or class. The ethos is given life through our relationships; the way we work together and behave with one another and those we serve, are a demonstration and authentication of our ethos.
