visyon ltd

Visyon promotes and improves the mental health and emotional well-being of young people aged 11 to 25 through the provision of counselling and complementary services. It operates from its base in Congleton, Cheshire.

The young people who come to visyon have complex emotional, psychological and behavioural needs, whatever their background and level of affluence. They are struggling to cope with the profound changes taking place in their world. Research shows that adolescents' mental health is deteriorating with conduct and emotional problems worsening. These can be caused by; changes in family make-up; higher expectations in school; decline in social cohesion and responsibility; greater availability of drugs and alcohol. Our counsellors work with young people to help them find their own solutions, to cope better with what is thrown at them.

The issues that young people come to visyon for counselling include: self-harm; depression; anxiety; anger; bereavement; bullying; substance abuse (alcohol or drugs); eating disorders; school problems; abuse (physical, sexual or mental); family breakdown; relationship problems. One client said,"I went from someone who found it difficult to walk own the street to someone with a real future. "
