What can we offer?

HYPe offers a free and confidential counselling service. Our counsellors are fully trained and are experienced in working with young people and the kinds of emotional problems you face.

You will be accepted as an individual, be listened to and not be judged

We always respect your opinions and ask for your feedback on our service so we can make sure it’s the sort of service young people want. HYPe welcomes suggestions on how to improve its services, so please contact us. We also offer one-to-one counselling sessions in different locations in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale.

At your first introductory appointment you will be given information and our confi dentiality policy. This will be fully explained to you. You can attend this introduction on your own or have a relative, carer or care worker with you. All other appointments will be just for you and your regular counsellor.

We are a short term service usually offering up to six sessions. This can be extended, after consultation, to a maximum of 10 sessions. Sessions last up to 50 minutes.

If English isn’t your first language, we can provide an interpreter.

Patient Advice and Liaison Service

The Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) acts on behalf of service users, families and carers to negotiate prompt solutions and help bring about changes in the way that services are developed. As well as providing a confi dential advice and support service, PALS will help guide you through the different services available from the NHS.
