A 10 year old Aussie girl has contacted the Kids Helpline several times discussing her parents plans to force her to marry a 31 year old man. 

According to the Daily Telegraph, the Sydney girl used online chat to speak to counsellors in March and again in April claiming her parents told her she would be going to the Middle East to marry the older man. 

One counsellor has been quoted in the story. 

'She contacted us first in March saying, ''I want to talk to a counsellor today about getting married''

'She did talk a little bit about having sex and her concern around what that was all about."

The counsellor revealed the Helpline had been working with NSW Police to contact the girl, after she gave them the name of a school. 

NSW Police and the Federal Police have both declined to comment about whether they've made contact with the little girl. 

The Kids Helpline exists to help any Australian child who needs help - they can be contacted on 1800 55 1800
