What is HYA Online Counselling?

What is HYA Online Counselling?

Hello, my name is Ruth and I am an online counsellor here at HYA. Here at Hampshire Youth Access we are offering online counselling to young people aged between 14 and 17 (up to the eve of their 18th birthday) who live in Hampshire and are registered with a GP in Hampshire. Unfortunately Portsmouth is not currently supported by this service.

Ruth Counsellor HYA

I have 10 years’ experience in face to face counselling and 2 years’ experience in online counselling. I work within the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) ethical framework and I have regular clinical supervision.

We can offer up to 6 ‘live chat’ sessions on a bespoke, secure, platform, each session lasting 50 minutes. These sessions are held at the same time and on the same day each week.

Due to the confidential nature of counselling, we ask you as the client, to be able to use a secure internet connection, and have access to a confidential space in your own home – somewhere quiet where others are not able to see your screen. If you are sharing the device you use with others then do ensure you log off the platform after use.

Counselling is time and space for you to explore your feelings, and anything that is troubling you. If you feel you are ready to ask for some support to help understand how you are feeling, and feel ready to make some changes for yourself, why not register with us and see where your journey might take you?
