Counselling by MIND

CPSL Mind offers a fully funded counselling service which provides time-limited one to one counselling with a trained counsellor from various locations across Cambridgeshire.

Counselling can be helpful in clarifying the problems and challenges which all of us face at some time in our lives. It can help us to gain fresh perspectives and, in turn, make positive changes in our lives which can ultimately have a profound impact on our emotional wellbeing.

Your counsellor will:

  • Listen non-judgementally
  • Enable you to express your feelings
  • Help you to explore and understand your difficulties
  • Help you to find new ways of managing the challenges you face

Counselling is not about making judgements. It is a specific arrangement between the client and counsellor, and it is confidential in all but exceptional circumstances.

Good Mood Cafes by MIND

We have teamed up with community cafes across the county to run our weekly Good Mood Cafes.

These two hour informal ‘get togethers’ are designed to connect individuals to other like-minded people within their communities; offer wellbeing support and share interests and skills.

It’s OK not to be OK, so you don’t have to be in a good mood to come along to our Good Mood Cafe – but we hope everyone will leave the Good Mood Cafes feeling better than when they arrived.
