We thought it would be worth taking a bit of time to tell you what we have on offer. If after reading and using our service you feel there are changes and improvements we can make we would also very much like to hear your suggestions and we promise to listen and hopefully improve. We offer a free confidential advice service for everyone, including under 16s, and are EEFO kitemarked. Confidentiality means that whatever your discuss with the doctor or nurse will not be repeated to anyone unless you give permission to do so. We will not tell your parents, friends or other members of your family if you do not wish us to do so. The only time this may not apply is if you or someone else may be at risk from harm, but we will always try and get your permission first.
We are here to listen not to tell.

Most people have a time in their lives when things become a struggle and they can get down or worry too much. Often this will get better on it’s own but that may take a long time or they might need some more help. Sometimes people find medication helpful but some people prefer to talk through these problems with people trained to help.
Be Me believes that people know when they need some help but recognise that it can be hard to take the first step. We are happy to talk through whether we would be right for you and we are equally happy for you to talk it through with your GP.
