Shine counselling service

Need someone to talk to? Join our free and confidential counselling offer

Caring for someone else can be both wonderful and tough. There can be joyful times as well as perhaps confusing or times of feeling overwhelmed with the responsibility placed on your shoulders.

It would seem this year is going to present its own set of challenges with what is going on around us, which can compound feelings of worry and not knowing where to turn. Because we understand the pressures which can be placed on you, we are constantly looking for ways to help. To this end, we have set up a young persons’ counselling service available to those registered with Carers Support West Sussex.

This time of the year can be tricky at the best of times, so if you feel you would benefit from someone to talk to in a confidential space, we have the perfect solution for you.

What is involved?

The support will consist of six weekly one to one online sessions enabling you to talk openly and honestly without any fear of judgment or disapproval. The idea is that talking will help you deal with any emotional issues and help you move into a more positive mindset. You won’t be told what to do by anyone, all choices on how you move forward are still up to you.

Who is this service for?

This is a free to access service for carers between the ages of 18-25 who are registered with Carers Support West Sussex. Please note that as long as you are 25 on the 29th January 2021 then you are still eligible for this service.


These free sessions will start in mid-January running to mid-March. Due to these timescales, signing up needs to be acted on as soon as possible. So, if you feel this support is something that would help you in any aspect of your life, please do sign up at your earliest convenience.

How to sign up

It is really easy to sign up to this free service, please email or call 0300 028 8888 stating your wishes to be signed up to talk to someone. One of the Shine Team will get back in contact with you to arrange these one on one sessions.
