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've had similar problems to you. 

Ask me a question

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

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.

Next week

Our family can be really important to us, but no family is perfect. Arguments and fallouts are normal, but it doesn’t means they are easy to cope with. This week I’d be interested in hearing from people who have problems with their family relationships.
