It can also make it easier for us to get help to you if you’re in danger. You might not get a reply straight away but writing things down can help you to get your thoughts out.
Sending an email is different to speaking to a counsellor on the phone or online.
You can talk to them about anything, from self-harm and sexting to exam stress and eating problems.
You can email us anytime without having to wait for a counsellor to be free.
You’ll need an account to send an email, it’s quick and easy to sign up.
You don’t need to give your email address or name as you’ll choose a nickname and a username to use at Childline.
Remember, email is a great way to get information or advice that you don’t need straight away.
We aim to reply within 24 hours but sometimes it can take a little longer.
