Last year we ran a successful telephone counselling pilot through funding from Bristol Ageing Better. We were able to support 38 carers with up to 6 weekly sessions of counselling by telephone. 79% of those carers reported an improvement in at least one aspect of social isolation, loneliness and their wellbeing as a result.
After making a successful partnership bid, with Oasis Talk, we are now excited to be able to restart our telephone counselling service and offer carers the opportunity to access counselling by telephone for 6 weekly sessions.
Due to the requiements of our funding carers must:
- Live in Bristol
- Be aged 50 or over
- Not currently be in receipt of counselling or psychotherapy services elsewhere.
If you received counselling during our pilot service last year you can still access this support again. To make a referral please contact Zuleika Gregory at Oasis Talk: 0117 927 7577 or firstname.lastname@example.org
