Footsteps Walking With You provide face to face counselling for young people aged 11 – 25 and their families.  We understand that life can be difficult sometimes.  You may feel sad or anxious, you might hate yourself or be angry with other people, you may feel alone or confused.  We are here to listen, to support you and not to judge you.

In More Detail....

Footsteps wwy is a new charity that has been set up to provide affordable counselling for young people in Suffolk. It has developed out of a growing awareness of the needs of young people to have someone to talk to and in response to the lack of provision of professional counselling for this age group.

Our counsellors are all professional, qualified counsellors, working under supervision.  We abide by the code of ethics of ACC and are registered with the PSA.   We also have level 4 counselling students on placement working with us.
