Ask Sam letter


To Sam


Can we tell you about anything that we are proud of or do we only tell you about things that we need help with??
Ask Sam


Hi there,

ChildLine is here to listen to anything you want to say. There is nothing too big or too small for you to share with us. And if it’s important to you then it’s important to us as well. This can include positive, sad, scary or embarrassing things - or anything else that you want to share.

Lots of people worry that what they’ve got to say to us isn’t “important” enough or that somehow their problem is less than other people’s. Or it might be they don’t have a problem at all but worry about sharing something positive.

It would be great to hear what you're proud of. You could share this with a counsellor on the phone or through 1-2-1 chat. Or you can post something on our message boards. You can also try using our creative tool to express yourself.

However you decide to get in touch, we’ll be here for you.

Take care,

Need help straight away?

You can talk privately to a counsellor online or call 0800 1111 for free.

You can ask me about anything you want, there's nothing too big or small. I read every single letter but I can only answer a few each week. My replies are published here on my page.
