Charity Awareness Talk 2 Us is West Kent YMCA’s Counselling Service that can now offer Art Psychotherapy and Coaching Psychology alongside Counselling to anybody aged 8 years and above. We have a friendly, professional team who offer support, help, guidance or a listening ear. Talk 2 Us Counselling Service Ser Counselling offers a non-judgemental safe space to think about any issues or challenges faced. It offers an opportunity to be heard and supported. Art Psychotherapy uses art materials as some times words are difficult to find. The art work becomes a focus for discussion and enables time and space for process and reflection in a safe, therapeutic environment. After an initial meeting, individuals are offered 3 sessions as a taster opportunity to engage with the art materials. No previous experience of using art material is necessary and you don’t need to be a good artist! Coaching Psychology is goal-orientated focusing on enhancing and developing well-being to assist in clarifying life choices with an aim to bring about a state of happiness. This is done with the exploration of beliefs, values and understanding of oneself and natural reactions to build resilience and coping techniques. We work with a range of issues from anxiety and stress, depression and bereavement, eating disorders and self-harm to name just a few. You can self-refer into any of our services by phone or email where we can arrange to meet and match you to the right therapist fast and efficiently.
