Free Counseling by trainee counselor

Free Counseling is a very worthwhile project, the trainee will gain valuable experience and will help people that need more sessions to help them recover, or that cannot get more NHS treatment, or that need extra sessions, but cannot afford the cost of £40+ per hour

December 2016 - December 2017

  • Need


    The problem is the limited number of counselling sessions available given by Doctor's referral and the NHS, more and more people are now requiring counselling for their problems.


    We will support a Trainee Counsellor with the cost of travel to our premises, but mostly to pay for Supervision costs for the trainee, (supervision is counselling for the counsellor.) This amounts to about one and a half hours supervision for about 8 hours counselling, this is about £60 per session. note: this is always bieng revised upwards on a yearly basis to ensure the wellbieng of Counsellors!

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To run a Free Service for people that feel they need more counselling to help them recover,


    » There will be a one day per week Free Counselling sessions (bookable in advance.)

    What success will look like

    Success will be...having all our appointments be filled

  • Impact


    We will show success by monitoring the amount of people who use this free service


    There is a risk that the counsellor/client may fall ill in which case appointments would be re-booked


    Donors to this project will receive six monthly email report on the project detailing only the counsellors view on how the work is helping and the number of sessions. (As most of this work is of a confidential nature!)
