It’s tough being a teen – we’ve all been there and can relate. Often all they need is someone who will listen and provide support. While technology brings with it problems like cyber-bullying, it also provides solutions like online counseling for teens and their families, so they can privately talk to a counselor online from anywhere at just the right time.
That’s what Teens in Crisis (TIC+) is all about. With qualified professionals*, TIC+ provides face-to-face and online counseling to support children and young people aged 9-21 and their families living in Gloucestershire, UK. And they’re using the VSee Waiting Room to do it!

As one changed teen writes, “I finished with my counsellor about a year ago but I had seen her for well over a year, thanks to hundreds of extensions to our sessions. She was fantastic and she helped me so much. She was the first person I felt understood me, really cared and I was able to talk to easily…. Without her, my life would be so different, if I was even still alive by now. She helped me made so many big decisions and changes in my life. She is just incredible and so is this charity.”
