More People Seeking Relationship Advice in Weymouth


11:20am 31st December 2011

Calls to Weymouth Samaritans are still mostly about relationship problems, despite the recent financial crisis.

A recent YouGov poll shows that physical health issues, money and the current government are also in the top five worries of people in the South West.

David is Director of Samaritans in Dorset and said: "The largest percentage of calls are concerned with relationship issues in one form or another.

Some of these will have a financial aspect to them but it will be everything from the death of someone, the breakup of a relationship to sadly very often abuse.

The old adage that sharing a problem can halve it is very true so we're there for people to talk through their problems.

We'll listen in a positive way so we'll help them explore the options in their lives and they can be completely honest because everything is confidential."

South West Samaritans are currently piloting a free helpline for people who don't have credit on their phones.

If you need help over the Christmas period, the Samaritans are there 24 hours every day of the year. Call the Weymouth number on 01305 771 777.
