1-2-1 Counsellor chat

Chat with a counsellor online about whatever's worrying you.

Update from Childline
We're working a little differently because of coronavirus. You can only start a 1-2-1 chat with a counsellor from:

  • 7.30am - 10.30pm - Monday to Friday
  • 9am - 10:30pm - Saturday to Sunday

If you've joined the queue for a 1-2-1 chat before 10:30pm, you'll still get through to a counsellor.

  • read and post to the message boards with other young people
