    At UKoE we do have a large network of bronies and pegasisters who are willing to take time to help you and listen to you.

    The staff are always willing to listen and if you need someone to turn to you can always send one or more of us a PM.

    However we are not trained counsellors and sometimes the help and advice you might need is beyond our scope.

    So here are some contact details for you in case you ever need them.
