Are you a teenager looking at depression tests?

bullet waves 2 grey on yellow aa-img029_crAre you a teenager or young person looking at depression tests?

If so I would strongly encourage you to talk to someone in confidence. It’s easy to just assume that you have to solve it all on your own and to feel isolated even when you are surrounded by people.
Even when some people don’t understand, there are others who will.
Here are some sources in the UK of confidential support and information about face-to-face counselling:

  • Your GP, who may be able to offer counselling and who can also offer medication. It’s always good to talk to your GP.
  • The NSPCC website NSPCC website > Helpline with their excellent 24 hour helpline,
    Childline on 0800 1111 for 18’s and under
  • The Mix, help and support for under-25’s on
  • is a site to help young people with self-harm issues.
  • If you are having suicidal thoughts, then there is a specialist helpline for young people and those concerned about them, Hopeline, on 0800 068 41 41. It’s not 24 hours. See for opening hours.
  • Here in Bristol, Off The Record, located on St Michael’s Hill, near the BRI, offer young people aged up to 25 free, confidential counselling and support.
  • And of course is anyone is feeling suicidal, there is always the Samaritans: 08457 90 90 90 (ROI: 1850 60 90 90)

What my clients say

You are really, really a very kind person. Thank you for your effort and advice in helping me!

I was never convinced counselling would work. But your approach and your ability to use different methods to suit individual needs has truly changed me on a deep level.

The very first session I had with him was so helpful and powerful that I recommended him to two other people straightaway.

Andrew works gently and safely and I felt held in a safe space throughout the session.

I have made some major breakthroughs in sessions with you.

I was blown away by your insightful and transformative approach.

A different approach from other therapists I have seen before, so that I have finally solved my problem.

More happened in the first session I had with you than in 4 or 5 sessions with a counsellor.

[Your hypnosis] was remarkably effective and entirely different and tailor-made for my individual needs and experiences. Thank you!!!

Although counselling was new territory for me, it was invaluable and worth every penny.

Had a massive effect on my relationship. Learned loads of really good stuff – surpassed my expectations.

Andrew is one of the best therapists I have ever worked with. If you want to make a breakthrough with an issue in your life or relationship, I highly recommend…

I have made some incredible progress and I am now in an intimate and happy relationship thanks to your help.
