Mental Health has become a major concern over recent years.
Across our communities, many people are suffering from a mental health condition in silence and isolation. Mental Health is broad and many people become fearful when they hear the word and can be judgemental.
We want to bring understanding to the different types of mental health conditions and how to spot them early. By identifying the condition in its early stages there are different techniques that can be learnt. For example, something could trigger you to feel upset or angry. Talking through this in therapy can bring resolution and a way of moving forward which will enable you to cope when that feeling occurs.
We have a diverse range of Therapists who are equipped to work with a broad spectrum of conditions. We do talking therapies as well as Psychoeducational workshops. With over 20 years of experience between us, we will guide you through the process and support you on your journey to finding peace, happiness and healing.
Dedicated to Change Project offers free/subsidised counselling sessions for those who meet the criteria; if you are a student, unemployed or on a low income under £25,000 pa and you have been directly affected by COVID-19.
WHAT IS COUNSELLING?
The process of counselling is talking about and working through your personal problems with a counsellor. The counsellor will help you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. Counsellors are not there to tell you what to do. Instead, they will encourage you to talk about what's bothering you in order to uncover any root causes and identify your specific ways of thinking. The counsellor may then look to create a plan of action to either help you reconcile your issues, or help you to find ways of coping. Counselling is not a fixed format, each session is generally tailored to the individual's needs. Where the Counsellor may use a variety of counselling formats/ theories.
HOW WE DELIVER THERAPY
We provide Therapeutic support via online or telephone. This is so people can access from anywhere and also this means anyone can access whether you are teenager aged 18+, everyday people, have a disability, have an illness that keeps you at home where it is impossible for you to get out and the elderly.
HOW WE WORK
We rely on funding, donations and therapist who want to give back to the community. This enables us to provide free, subsidised or low-cost therapy to the people in our communities. Therefore,
we are only able to offer a limited number of free/subsidised sessions. For example, once you have gone through the assessment process and fit the criteria. You will receive a set number of sessions. Once these sessions have ended you will have the opportunity to discuss whether any more sessions are needed. These sessions will be charged at a low affordable cost based on your income.
