We at A & N counselling want to offer the disadvantged people in the local commuity a safe, empatic, confidential and non- judgemental space to off load there issues.
We are a non-profit community interest company working within the Basildon district neighbourhoods, facilitating counselling for the local disadvantaged residents.
Many studies have shown that 1 in 3 people suffer at some point in there life with a common mental health issue.
We have found there is huge stigma attached to mental health be it, financial, personal, work, and/or general health immplication. This can pervent people from seeking counselling. Mental health can cause people to become issolated and feel they have no where to turn.
Our aim is to break the sitgma surrounding common mental health and be fully accessible to those who need it most, by achieving this it will also help educate the community so mental health is no longer frowned apon. We want to break down the barriers of isolation by being fully involved with the community and enabling communtiy engagement with our service with an ease and comfort.
A & N Counselling belives in empowering each and every indivaul to gain a better understanding of there own mental well-being and to help reach there full protenal with resilience.
To accomplish this we need your help, we need funding, sponsorship and donations so we can see as many of the residences in the local area in need of our services.
It costs us almost £1000 to see 1 client for 12 sessions, we wish to reach as many of the local people as we can to help them make changes in their life, we feel that by doing this it will have a rippling effect within the local community in all aspects.
We can not do this without your help.
Please help us to make a difference.
