A range of specialist support
We understand how hard this time has been for us all. Months of lockdown and loss have had a huge impact on people’s mental health.
Support from a ‘stranger’ can sometimes be easier than talking to your family or friends. Which is why we deliver a range of individual support, specifically for your needs. Our expert facilitators and volunteer befrienders are non-judgemental, empathic and compassionate. They will create a safe and confidential space in which to support you.
We provide the following types of support:
- Active Monitoring – A series of six one-to-one sessions with our experienced practitioners who will help support you to improve your wellbeing. The sessions focus on pathways for anxiety and panic attacks; depression; stress; anger; loneliness; and grief and loss. This is currently delivered in Poole, and Weymouth & Portland.
- Befriending – We match you with one of our friendly, trained volunteers who will provide one-to-one support in the community and help you work towards goals that will increase your confidence and self-esteem.
- Counselling – Access professional support from our team of counsellors. They will help you address and come to terms with underlying mental health issues and support you towards recovery.
- Mentoring – We currently offer this for our Eating Disorder clients only, access is via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are here to listen, to support and to help you.
If you are interested in one-to-one support, please email email@example.com and we will help you take steps to start getting support for better mental health.
