What is counselling?
Talking to a KHP counsellor is about talking to someone who knows a lot about many different issues that teens face. We think of counselling as a conversation with someone who you can trust, who won't judge you, and who wants to help.
We won't tell you what to do, but we are here to help you explore your options. You'll decide what's best for you.
"Does it cost me minutes to phone?"
Depending on your service provider, the call may use minutes. You will not be charged any long-distance fees, no matter where you are in Canada.
"If I call, will the number show up on my phone bill?"
If you call from a cell phone, the number may show up on your bill. Our number will not show up on your bill if you call us using a land line or a pay phone.
"I'm too scared to call."
It's normal to feel nervous about calling. If you're feeling shy about talking about your problem, try writing it down first. The counsellor you speak to will understand if you're nervous. Take your time. You can always call us back when you're ready.
"My problem's not that huge. Should I just keep it to myself?"
There is no problem too big or too small for us. The call is about you, so if it's important to you, then it's important to us.
"What does anonymous and confidential mean?"
Anonymous means that you don't have to tell us who you are. We don't have caller ID, so we can't track your call. Confidential means it's just between you and the counsellor. The only time we would ever go against our anonymous and confidential promise is if you tell us that someone is hurting you, has hurt you, or is likely to hurt you in the future, AND you give us personal info, like your name or address. We will also need to report it if you tell us you are planning to hurt yourself or someone else, or if you have committed a crime--but remember, you have to tell us who you are for us to do that.
