Has anyone on here actually used kooth and found it effective? I feel like I'm spiralling but there's no one to talk to about it. No one in my family would get it and to my friends depression, anxiety and suicide are jokes to be tossed around lightly. I've heard of kooth and would like some totally honest reviews, pros and cons please

I can hear how alone you feel. I don't know much about Kooth, but I can also highly recommend Childline as an alternative! I'm a volunteer counselor for them and I think it's a wonderful service.

Here's some info:
- up to age 19
- free phone, 24/7 (and won't show up on phone bills)
- really useful website with message boards and loads of info and advice
- if you make an account, you can have an online -1-2-1 chat with a counselor
- confidential most of the time unless you're in serious danger etc.

feel free to ask me any other questions!

Kooth is really useful! You can speak to a counsellor over message for up to an hour once a week! The people are really nice and make you feel like you aren’t alone and they are really there for you. 10/10 recommend it.

I've heard really positive reviews about Kooth, although it's not available in all areas (not in mine, anyway). I would echo the suggestion above - Childline is great as well if you don't find Kooth helpful/if you've already used your one hour once a week

Hi, this is a really late comment but I 100% recommend Kooth. I've been speaking to the same counsellor for about a year and half and could not be happier. Admittedly I am still struggling but counsellors can't change our lives we have to do it ourselves. But, if you are looking for support and maybe just someone to talk to when things aren't feeling so great then Kooth is just brilliant. You can have an hour session a week with a counsellor and you can message the team as much as you need throughout the rest of the week. You can write magazine articles explaining your struggles and read how others have managed to cope. There's also live forums where loads of users come together to discuss different topics. It really is absolutely fantastic.
