We really appreciate you taking your first step in contacting our service, but sadly we have had to take the difficult decision to hibernate ACCESS for the foreseeable future. We hope that we will be able to reopen, but at this time we do not know when this will be and therefore felt that it was unfair and unhelpful to keep you waiting to be seen by our service.
We appreciate that this will not be welcome news especially in the current background of a pandemic and you have our sincere apologies for this.
If you are still looking for support we advise that you contact your GP, but you may also wish to look at the following website: https://www.healthierlsc.co.uk/MentalHealthSupport
When we are able to open again we will update our social media accounts to reflect this and would be very happy to see you in the future.
“The ACCESS service has been a tremendous help in all respects. I feel I can deal with problems much more confidently. I feel I can walk into the future with a clear understanding of myself”.
“I feel very supported and valued. Steve has made a big contribution to my emotional well being and is an incredibly empathic and kind man. I am very grateful to Steve”.
“Linda has done so much for me thanx. I will always come back when needed”.
“Enjoy coming every week; it always makes me feel good about myself and happier when I leave. Thanks”.
“Found my Counsellor great ‘T’ has given me great support. Very happy with what I have gotten so far”.
“Pip is a credit to the service and herself. A good friend :)”.
“Thank you Kim you have helped me a lot and made a big difference to my life and in myself. You have made me come a long way and made me happy in myself. I hope the future turns out good for you. Hope to see you around”.
“I definitely understand myself better and what ‘Triggers’ emotional meltdown in me. Just being able to talk to some-one who can remain neutral, but at the same time has incite, has empowered me much more to make the right choices. Often after a counselling session I feel happier and lighter. Losing parents and the loss of their support is difficult but through counselling I can express my emotions and therefore I feel I have a voice and therefore I fill that void”.
“The service was extremely helpful and progressive as I was in turmoil with my life. I now feel I can move on and accept the things I cannot change and accept life as it is now at present. Thank you.”
“I enjoy using the service; makes me feel safe”.
“It (Counselling through play) was more fun than a psychologist; playing is better than talking about worries all the time”.
