The Listening Ear is a local charity providing counselling support for children and young people throughout the BCP area since 2002, working within schools and youth centres in partnership with BCP council since 2012.

Our service has been acknowledged by both the BCP council and local schools to be an effective support for mental health and well-being.

​Timely intervention has been proven to help children and young people in times of need. Counselling is a way to provide them with the right tools to manage issues such as anxiety, depression, self-harming, low esteem, as well as many other concerns.

Now, more than ever, our team of fully qualified and DBS checked counsellors understand the need for mental health support. We have adapted our service to be able to continue to meet these needs within our community.
