About Project

Kooth is a free online counselling and emotional wellbeing platform for children and young people, provided by XenZone. It is provided free at the point of use for young people living in Harrow.

Online counselling has the potential to revolutionise the way in which we provide support to children and young people. It opens up access out of traditional working hours and allows teenagers and young adults to contact counsellors from their own home. Online forums and advice also empower young people by helping them to learn more about the problems they are facing and facilitating the sharing of experiences with others going through the same difficulties.

Kooth is:

•Safe, confidential, anonymous

•Free at the point of need

•Available through a smartphone, tablet or computer with a good internet connection


Features:

· Confidential, 1-2-1 instant messaging with Kooth’s team of qualified counsellors.

· Open 7 days per week, 365 days a year, from noon until 10pm weekdays and from 6pm until 10pm on Saturday and Sundays.

· Young people can access this service anonymously by signing onto the Kooth site.

· Kooth Magazine (a hub full of creative pieces and personal experiences for peer to peer support)

· Kooth discussion forums to facilitate peer-led support and self-help articles (many written by service users).

· Counsellors, therapists and support workers provide guided, outcome-focused help for each individual.

Kooth has no referrals or waiting lists.
