Counselling changes lives, giving people the skills and confidence to make changes to improve their situation and take responsibility for their actions.
Counselling can help people suffering from a wide variety of problems; including anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship tensions, sexual abuse, critical or chronic illness, disability, life change and many more.
It’s good to talk. Most people will suffer from mental distress at some point in their lives. Counselling support can prevent this from becoming a more serious mental health problem and help people to manage their emotional responses to life’s challenges so that they do not seriously impact their lives.
“My counsellor made me feel safe, respected and listened to. I was really worried about coming for counselling, but she couldn’t have done more to help me relax and get out of the big black hole I had got myself in.”
“I didn’t know what to expect but I knew I needed some help. My counsellor was fantastic. I still have dark days but counselling has really helped get my life back on track. I would advise anyone to try it.”
Evolve’s website contains many self-help guides and articles to inform and educate people about various mental health issues.
Individual counselling sessions are provided on an ‘pay as you go’ basis with clients being assessed on their ability to pay according to their gross annual income (personal not household). Evolve tops up the remainder of the payment as our charitable contribution to ensure that those on lower incomes can access high quality professional support.
If you employer is willing to pay for your counselling, they should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Evolve also provides training and workshops on various mental health topics to organisations.
