Online or face to face services available for organisations, senior leaders, individual staff, volunteers and teams:

Professional Therapy/Counselling*

Professional therapy utilising person-centred, cognitive behavioural and solution focussed therapeutic approaches, dependent on what issues you bring to therapy and the type of approach you are looking for.  Counselling always seeks to understand the individual’s worldview. Incorporation into the therapy of an individual’s personal faith will be client-led.

Pastoral Supervision*

Differing from professional counselling, these sessions seek to aid leaders’ emotional health by providing a confidential and supportive space to talk. Sessions may be used to ‘off-load’ work/organisational pressures, discuss personnel issues, debrief critical incidents in the organisation, manage work/life balance and personal well-being.

These sessions are offered as a one-off or a regular (ie monthly, bi-monthly) booking.

Annual ‘Mental Health MOT’*

These sessions can be accessed by the senior leader, individual staff or volunteers to monitor mental and emotional well-being at a yearly interval.  The session will include assessment of the presence of any symptoms anxiety or low mood out of the normal range (by using standardised questionnaires) and psycho-educational advice and signposting, discussion around emotional, physical (and spiritual**) health.

**where applicable.
