LifeLine offers a 24-hour crisis telephone counselling service, 365 days of the year. Our trained counsellors are available to talk to you and listen to you, no matter what you need to talk to us about. Confidentiality is the one of the cornerstones of our counselling process. LifeLine respects your right to privacy and no information you give us will be divulged without your permission to do so. If you wish to be referred to another agency or specialist, LifeLine can supply you with the details you need - once again this will only happen if you decide that this is the course you want to take.
