Aylesbury Youth Concern said: "Through these uncertain times, we have seen demand for our counselling services increase as more young people struggle to cope.

"We also know the months of lockdown will have a lasting impact on young people’s mental health for years to come - whether that's because of traumatic experiences at home, the pressures of isolation, or a more hopeless outlook.

"We are committed to providing the counselling support young people need."
