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.

Virtual Good Mood Cafes
Good Mood cafes are informal ‘get togethers’ designed to connect individuals to other like-minded people within their communities; offer wellbeing support and share interests and skills.
We hope to connect people who live in the same district and begin to build a community online that eventually will migrate back into their local Good Mood Cafe and continue to connect in person.
We’ll have a cuppa and chat and while it’s okay not to be okay, we hope that by joining you’ll feel a bit better than you did before you came:
