The Counselling Foundation
The team at The Counselling Foundation support the mental health of people across Hertfordshire by offering counselling, counselling training and bereavement support. It gives people on low incomes access to affordable long-term therapy which isn’t widely available in the area. They strive to help people struggling with their mental health and to eradicate the stigma attached to it.
Individuals experiencing poverty and on low-incomes have been disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and face greater risk to their mental health. The need for quality and subsidised counselling and therapeutic interventions has never been more important.
Funding from the NET Coronavirus Appeal, through the Hertfordshire Community Foundation, enabled the Foundation to offer heavily subsidised counselling sessions and bereavement support via telephone or video, reaching those in urgent need of it.
