What is Online Counselling?
E-motion provides counselling via our secure online portal.
Online counselling allows you to talk about your problems and feelings in a safe supportive and private space online.
A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes). They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings that you have.
E-motion is for anyone who is 12 – 18 yrs old and living in East Sussex and has access to a computer or smart phone.
E-motion is not a crises or emergency service, so we recommend that if you feel there is a serious risk to yourself or others, or you are in danger or experiencing an emergency you contact the following organisations.

We are qualified, experienced young people’s counsellors from the Young People’s Centre, who are trained in online counselling and work within the BACP ethical codes and guidelines.
We won’t be telling you what to do or giving advice as we aim to work together on your concerns, empowering you to help yourself to find better ways of managing your situation, finding your own solutions or making some changes.
We will listen to you and provide a safe, supportive and confidential space where you can express your thoughts and feelings, and you can expect to be heard, understood and accepted without being judged.
