COVID19 RESPONSE: We have made some adjustments to the way we currently deliver our services to ensure that everybody is kept safe. We are currently offering telephone or video counselling sessions. Our waiting list for face-to-face counselling sessions remains closed. This will continue to be reviewed in line with government guidance.
About the Service
Counselling offers a regular space to talk about the issues that you have in your life. You will meet your counsellor in a private and confidential setting on a weekly basis. Your counsellor will have the skills and training needed to help you explore your feelings and guide you through the issues effecting your life.
You are able to access up to 16 sessions. Remotely via telephone or video link, or at our premises at Highcliffe House.
How can this help me?
Counselling can help people with a number of issues. The sessions can be helpful for people who may or may not have a mental health diagnosis, so you do not have to have a specific condition to access the support. Some examples of issues things that people bring to counselling include depression, anxiety, relationships, abuse, bereavement and loss.
Your counsellor will not judge you or tell you what to do, but will listen and help support you to make sense about events in your life.
Who can access?
Anyone over the age of 18 who is experiencing difficulties with their mental health or emotional wellbeing.
The cost per session is £12.
York Mind receives no direct funding for our general counselling service so payments for sessions within this service cover costs of providing the service and ensure it remains available for everyone.
We aim to be in touch within two weeks of receiving your referral, after which you will be placed on a 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 16 sessions with a trained counsellor.
