One-to-one support

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 MonitoringA 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. The service is currently available in Bournemouth and Poole. Visit the service page for more details.
  • 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. Visit the service page for more information and email befriending@dorsetmind.uk if you have any questions.
  • CounsellingAccess 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. Visit the service page for more information and email adultcounselling@dorsetmind.uk if you have any questions.
  • MentoringWe currently offer this for our Eating Disorder clients only, access is via email: restored@dorsetmind.uk.

We are here to listen, to support and to help you.
