Ask Sam

Something on your mind? Or need some support?

Anyone can write in with their problem. I respond to a few letters each week. You can also read my advice to people who have similar problems to you. 

Ask me a question

You can ask me about anything you want, there's nothing too big or small.

Write me a letter

What you need to know:

  • Sam reads every letter, but can only respond to a few each week
  • Sam's replies are public, never private, so others can read them
  • Sam will remove personal info from your letter to keep it anonymous
  • if yours is chosen, you'll see it under one of the topics below
  • if you need support now or want to talk privately, contact a counsellor for free on 0800 1111.

Message from Sam

You can write to me about anything and I read every single letter, but I choose just a few to answer on my page each week. I'm sorry if I don't answer your letter but I always try and write my response to help anyone with a similar problem, so there is probably a letter that I've answered before which might help. If you definitely want a response you can always talk to one of our counsellors and they will always be there.
