Support Services

One-to-One Wellbeing Counselling available

We’re delighted to once again be hosting a counselling service, which began today.

Our counsellor, Martin, is a trainee wellbeing counsellor, for people who sometimes feel a little overwhelmed with day-to-day life and would just like to take time out to talk through their feelings.

Martin joins us as part of his work experience and could be with us for a whole year, possibly expanding his hours. If all goes very well, his college may well offer us a second counsellor to extend the service.

If you’d like to book an appointment with Martin, please call us on 01634 319633 (leave a message if prompted). He will be available on Wednesdays from 10.30-11.30am, and 12-1pm.


Tuesday is Time To Talk day!


A recent addition to the activities at the hub is a Time To Talk session, run by one of our volunteers, Liz Lloyd.

“People are really benefitting from what you do each week.”

Taking place on a Tuesday afternoon from 1.30pm-3.30pm, it’s already attracted a regular group of people who relish the opportunity to talk around their concerns.

“I left feeling much more optimistic.”

Combining the opportunity to talk out their feelings with mindfulness, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques, the feedback for Liz’s dedication and delivery has been fantastic.

“The group was supportive, informative and well prepared, passing on life skills.”

Feel free to drop in any week. If you feel you need a bit more 1-2-1 attention, a thinkaction counsellor is available at the hub on Mondays.  Call 0300 029 3000 to book.

“I learned to relax and calm down.”

Time to Talk was instigated by national organisation Time To Change, to address mental health issues by supporting those with low level needs to avoid further interventions, and to end the stigma surrounding mental health.

“An eye opener, we all opened up.”
