support is key Reopens 13th September 2021

To Key Workers in the NHS, Care Services, Police, Fire Service and Teachers affected by Covid-19 - we want to offer our support!

The British Psychotherapy Foundation (bpf) have launched a “Support is Key” project - for those working within the NHS, Social Care, Police, Fire Service and Teachers, who have been affected by the recent Coronavirus outbreak. This project offers you up to 6 free sessions with a trained psychotherapist, who will offer an opportunity to talk to them - Via an online medium or by phone - about how you might have been affected by these difficult circumstances.

Our service is free, confidential and provided by highly trained psychotherapists, who are all members of the bpf and registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council.

“Support is Key” project offers 6 sessions where you will have the opportunity to talk to a highly skilled psychotherapist who will listen to you thoughtfully and in a non-judgemental manner. Our therapists appreciate that the Covid-19 Pandemic, the consequent social restrictions, and the extra work demands placed upon Key Workers can cause significant stress and may reactivate previous difficulties. The 6 sessions provide an opportunity and space to talk about the way you may have been affected – you will not be offered advice but talking to someone can help to clarify things and make sense of your experience. After your 6 sessions, should you wish to think about ongoing therapy in the future, you are welcome to contact Clinical Services – we may also be able to signpost you to particular services in your area.
