About Organisation

Kooth is a free service for young people aged 11-18 to talk about emotional health and wellbeing. Kooth is an online counselling and emotional well-being platform for children and young people, accessible through mobile, tablet and desktop and free at the point of use. On Kooth you can chat to our friendly counsellors, read articles written by young people, get support from the Kooth community and write in a daily journal.

Young people wanting to use Kooth can speak to trained counsellors anonymously about their thoughts and feelings. Once a young person has signed up to use the service, they will have access to a whole range of resources such as unlimited free counselling sessions with trained professionals, moderated forums, self-help materials and a mood journal where they can record their thoughts and feelings. Young people are encouraged to identify their own goals and monitor progress with their counsellor, charting movement as progress is achieved.

Anonymous and available

Kooth is an anonymous site which helps children and young people to feel safe and confident in exploring their concerns and seeking professional support. Kooth.com is an online application removing the need for Apple/Android accounts, data requirements and the stigma of mental health apps on your devices.

Human practitioners

Our live counselling functionality allows children and young people to receive professional support through either booked or drop-in sessions as and when a session is required. Our qualified practitioners are real people, not bots, with significant experience in working with children and young people.

Multiple ways to get help

Our suite of applications allows children and young people to choose how they want to access help: Magazines, Forums, Activity Centres, Messaging, Live Counselling. Each component can be accessed as a stand-alone or as part of a wider care package.

No waiting lists or referrals

Access to Kooth is immediate! There is no need for a referral, no waiting lists and the service is available 24/7.
