How can this help me?MIND_2010_093

Counselling provides a regular time and space for you to talk about your troubles and explore difficult feelings with a trained professional. This can help you deal with specific problems, find new ways of coping, improve your relationships and lead to better ways of living. The purpose of counselling is not usually to give advice, but to help you understand your feelings and behaviour better and, if you want to, to change your behaviour or the ways you think about things.

Who can access?

This is a service specifically developed for people who care for others with a mental, physical or other disability.

Cost

York Mind is a non-profit making charity funded through grants, service contracts and by contributions received from clients. The carers counselling project is a part funded by York Carers Centre. 

We ask all clients accessing the carers counselling service to contribute a minimum of £10 per session to help ensure the continuation of the service for everyone.

We aim to be in touch within two weeks of receiving your referral, after which you will be placed on our waiting list.

What will Happen Next?

When your referral is at the top of the waiting list a member of the counselling team will contact you to arrange a face to face assessment. This will offer an opportunity to share a little bit about your situation, explore what counselling is and how it may be able to help. If you feel that the support is something that will be helpful to you, you will then be offered up to 12 sessions with a trained counsellor.
