Parental Minds Counselling

Parental Minds Counselling service - Counselling for parents and carers

Thank you for contacting Parent+ Support Hub, which is a peer support group for mental health caregivers and is run by Parental Minds CIC.

Parental Minds CIC aims to improve communication & collaboration between mental health services in East Devon & Nationally and ensure the voices of Mental Health Caregivers are heard and valued. We provide well-being workshops, using our own resources to aid prevention and early intervention of mental health issues within families, promoting open communication, self-care and acceptance.

We also provide safe, secure wrap-around care to Mental Health Caregivers at Honiton’s Parent+ Support Hub, including access to low cost Talking Therapy.

What is Talking therapy?

Talking therapy gives you an opportunity to speak to someone about how you are feeling. They are independent from your family and friends, which means that you may feel able to speak to them more openly. They help you to find your own ways of making changes in your life, to identify your strengths and to help you find new ways of dealing with any difficulties.

Where will we meet?

The sessions will be virtual or by telephone at this moment in time.

When do the sessions take place?

Your talking therapist will contact you to arrange this and will agree the frequency of sessions and give you an estimation of the number of sessions they feel is appropriate for your needs.

Is there a cost to this service?

Yes, we ask for a donation towards Parental Minds CIC and expenses for the talking therapist. We suggest £20 (payable by BACS after your session to Parental Minds CIC, Sort Code 51-61-23, Account number 72643951), however, if you are unable to manage this fee, please tell us what you can afford when you register.

Should you need to cancel a session, please let your therapist know within 48 hours, otherwise we do ask that you pay for that session.

What happens next?

We have matched you with a talking therapist and they will contact you to arrange your first appointment. In some circumstances, we may also supply you with their details.

What if I feel these session aren’t working for me?

We would encourage you to discuss any issues with your talking therapist, as they will be able to talk to you about this and possibly explore different ways of working with you.

All our Talking Therapists are DBS checked, work under their own insurance and offer their time voluntarily to Parental Minds CIC families.
