Who else is involved in this service?
We’re working with North Lindsey College and Ambassador Training to deliver this service. We’re able to offer counselling, life coaching, training, and providing volunteering opportunities to help you get back into work or develop your skills and confidence.

Why choose our counselling service?
We set up Ongo Talk because we wanted to be able to offer an affordable counselling and life coaching service to those who need it. We also wanted to offer a service where you will be guaranteed to hear from us within three working days of you getting in touch with us.
