COVID-19 

The wïsh Centre are continuing with our vital support services for young people during this difficult time. Many of our face to face services will be digital and we will be checking with each young person to ensure our service remains accessible to all.

The wïsh Centre will be offering a mix of digital therapy during school time and after school, online peer support groups and face to face work in line with guidance.

Who are we? i

The wïsh centre is a London based charity that prevents self harm, abuse and exploitation of young people. We are a community based model that provides open ended therapy and counselling in schools and at our Centre, plus peer support groups, out of hours help, and advice and training. The wïsh centre is a free service for young people aged 10-25 years.

An evaluation by Government think tank Centre for Mental Health evidences that of the young people the wïsh centre supports 90% had either reduced self-harming significantly or stopped all together.

I feel safe

The wïsh centre prevents self harm, suicide and child sexual exploitation so that children and young people are safe from serious harm from themselves and others.

Aisha’s story

How we help

wïsh was the only time I thought I could have a future without self-harm – like I realised I could take back

It doesn’t look as bleak as it used to, a change in mood and through coming here – I have learned not to let a setback keep me down

Before I would just avoid talking to new people. I would just stand there, head down, say nothing. Now it’s easier to socialise and to be myself – Now I am less worried about people’s judgment of me

Confidence about my scars – before I used to hide it and stuff. But now I don’t really care – if someone’s looking at me I just look back at them

Hide me
