It's confidential

Talking to one of our counsellors in 1-2-1 counsellor chat is private. This means that whatever you say stays between you and Childline.

We would only need to say or do something if: 

  • you ask us to
  • we believe your life or someone else’s life is in danger
  • you're being hurt by someone in a position of trust who has access to other children like a teacher or police officer
  • you tell us that you're seriously harming another young person.
