Free online counseling support

To be honest, I’ve never found any online counselling of any help. In my opinion, the previously mentioned services would be a much better avenue, but this could just be my own personal experiences. "TURN2ME want to create a world where mental health issues are acknowledged and accepted. Where every person in distress will feel confident to openly access the support services they need, safe in the knowledge that attitudes have changed based on a communal understanding and willingness to support each other. "


I'm 100% definitely not qualified to counsel anybody, and this may not even be legal but I would hate to know you are struggling and are feeling completely isolated. If life's getting a bit much, your heads wobbling at 97mph with torrential rain and you can’t relate to anybody; please please send me a message and I’ll holla instantly. All I can offer is my own experiences and a bit of guidance on what route to take, which will usually involve anything mentioned upstairs, maybe going to your GP, or other mental health services I’ve used.

I can also offer a cuppa tea with a 97% chance of cake.
