Counselling & Therapy

People with experience of homelessness often have increased levels of anxiety and can suffer with low self-esteem. Others live with drug or alcohol addiction which can lead to poor mental health. At Wintercomfort, everyone has the opportunity to engage in regular support with our experienced counsellor. The counselling service has been developed with the input of those accessing support, with the aim to be as relevant and helpful as possible. Sessions are offered either in person or over the telephone, giving people the flexibility to engage in the way that most suits their needs and circumstances.
