COUNSELLORS TOGETHER CIC HAVE LAUNCHED THE W.I.S.H Project - Well-being, Isolation, Support HUB
Coronavirus has left our country in crisis. Our community members are suffering from isolation, exhaustion, stress, burnout and even Trauma.
Nothing like this has happened in our lifetime and we realise the horrific mental implications this crisis will take upon us all, as well as the aftermath, when the Coronvirus has finally left us, it will undoubtly cause many to still be suffering.
Many individuals had already started to contact our service about how they were already struggling with their Mental Health and not coping well, at all and that they were not in a great financial situation to afford many Counselling sessions.
So we decided to initially set up The W.I.S.H Project, which is supporting people online and providing a safe place for individuals to come and talk about their Mental Health struggles during this pandemic.
As an addition to this, we decided to expand our idea and set up a fundraiser to raise funds to enable us to provide up to 350 Counselling hours to those who will benefit from this and are struggling currently..
Counsellors Together CIC do not discriminate. No one is immune, no matter the gender, race, or religion. Our project is for anyone and everyone over the age of 16, in the UK, with Coronavirus related isolation, exhaustion, stress, burnout and even Trauma related issues.
Counsellors Together CIC will work to support you and other individuals in need of emotional and psychological support.
Individuals will receive up to 8 FREE sessions of counselling, either by Telephone, or via an Online Platform, with a member of our team.
Overall we aim to provide 350 hours of Funded Counselling sessions, to anyone that accesses the project. This could be members of the public, key workers, NHS staff, or any other members of staff. So this service really is open to ALL.
We have decided to offer this service for free to show our support to every one of you during this crisis.
All volunteers are either a qualified counsellor, or trainee counsellor, in their last year of training.
It is likely people may need support for longer than 3 months. This funding target of £7,000 will hopefully help us to support you all for up to 6 months and we hope to secure additional funding to enable us to provide this service, beyond this time scale.
This service is confidential and FREE during the Coronavirus crisis.
We are still resuming our current services as normal, albeit via Telephone and via online platforms
We are asking for anything, from as little as £2 per person. We are very grateful to you all.
Anything you are able to give, will help us to emotionally and psychologically support others. You can support others through donating to us. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
