Counselling at The Cogwheel Trust falls under the umbrella term ‘talking therapies’ and offers you a safe, confidential place to talk with a trained professional. People look for counselling for many different reasons – for personal, emotional or relationship problems, or simply because they want to understand themselves better. You may be looking for support to help work through a current difficult situation, or you may be looking to address longer term difficulties like troublesome past experiences, unhelpful patterns of behaviour or difficult relationships.
It can be difficult to take the first step, and many people feel somewhat hesitant, but seeking help is a very positive thing to do and we are here to offer support. A counsellor will not tell you what to do, but will encourage you to talk about what is on your mind so that together you can think about root causes and about what can change.
At The Cogwheel Trust we provide counselling for adults, young people and children. If you feel like your mental health is affecting you negatively, please get in touch.
The current COVID-19 virus emergency is having and will continue to have an impact on all parts of society and this includes the Cogwheel Trust.
The telephone line of the Cogwheel Trust is now closed due to the coronavirus emergency. The charity can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also as a consequence Cogwheel is regrettably unable to accept any new clients at the present time or indeed start counselling for those on the present waiting list whilst the current emergency continues. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
The charity does hope to be in a position to resume its normal counselling service when the current emergency has abated and it is safe to resume the service.
If you would like us to contact you when the charity is in a position to provide counselling to new clients please email email@example.com. We must advise that this could be quite a number of months away.
We are thankful for your support and understanding.
