About this cause
We are a long-established independent charity offering professional counselling to those suffering mental distress and anguish. We offer one-to-one counselling, free at the point of need. Clients are generally self or GP referred from Sandhurst, Crowthorne and adjoining areas, mainly within Bracknell Forest. They are normally seen on a weekly basis, for as long as they need therapy.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The pandemic has exacerbated mental health illness. No longer able to see our clients face to face, we have had to introduce online video and phone counselling to support our clients. Our counsellors have had to learn this new skill and subsequent training courses will further enhance this, supporting their work and professional development.
