Youth Talk

Youth Talk provides free, confidential counselling to 13-25 year olds in St Albans and surrounding areas.


A service dedicated to young people

  • Self-referral service – young people refer themselvesThere are no criteria that have to be met for a young person to self-refer – they just have to complete an online form, email or call.
  • Confidentiality – Youth Talk is a safe space to talk. All conversations are kept private and the young person doesn’t have to inform anyone.
  • Sessions from Monday – Friday from 10am – 7pm.
  • Completely free of charge.
  • Quick to start – try to see young people for an initial meeting within three weeks – quicker than other services such as CAMHS.
  • Support for up to a year – young people have an average of 12 sessions – but for those who need it they can be seen for up to a year.
