All our conversations are confidential

So don't worry you can talk to us about anything, we won't judge and you won't get in trouble

We're trained counsellors and are happy to help you with whatever you need. We can listen or give advice. We're here for everything that's on your mind no matter how big or small.

You can ask to speak with a woman or man counsellor and if you have spoken with a counsellor before you can ask to speak to the same person if you want to!

Thanks to our supporters, Barnardos works with families across Aotearoa helping children and young people to reach their full potential.

All calls to 0800 What’s Up are free. We couldn't do what we do without the help of this incredible group of people, including our corporate partners.
