Kooth are now able to accept new referrals for young people who feel they would benefit from counselling.
The referral procedure has changed slightly and there is now an online form which you can complete. Once the form is received you will receive a confirmatory email and they’ll be in-touch as soon as a counsellor becomes available. Each young person will then be allocated a dedicated counsellor and receive the same number of weekly sessions as before.
At this time they will not be visiting schools, so all sessions will be delivered via one of three methods; video (via Google Hangouts), telephone or synchronous text messages (chats) via the Kooth online platform. These methods will require either access to a PC / Laptop or telephone, in a confidential space within school. When they return to face to face working students will be given the option to continue online or move to in-person work.
