"Wiltshire Mind's vision is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all and that treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively and with respect. The needs and experiences of people with mental distress drive our work and we make sure their voice is heard by those who influence change. Our independence gives us the freedom to stand up and speak out on the real issues that affect daily lives. We provide information and support, campaign to improve policy and attitudes and develop local services.
We do all this to make it possible for people who experience mental distress to live full lives, and play their full part in society." COUNSELLING FEES - Wiltshire Mind is a registered charity and operates a low-cost contribution service - Initial Assessments are free of charge. - Your contribution for counselling sessions will be between £15 - £25 according to your personal circumstances. However, no one will be excluded because they are unable to meet the cost. Fees will be discussed at the initial assessment meeting. - Counselling helps in a wide variety of situations, long standing or recently met. It works by helping you to explore the emotions and feelings you have in order to better understand your own and often other people's behaviours. - With a counsellor, in confidentiality, you can identify and review those coping skills you have in dealing with life events, stresses and challenges such as: Bereavement, Anger, Relationships, Lack of motivation, Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Low self esteem, Emotional distress - This work can be focused on today, and the 'here and now' or you may want to confront its roots. Either way it is up to you. The Counsellor is there to support YOU.
