One to One Peer Support

Meet with a peer worker, talk through emotional challenges and share coping suggestions with someone who understands what it is like to experience mental health problems. Talking helps, but not everyone is comfortable talking in a group and even if you are, sometimes it’s nice to be able to sit and talk to someone on a one-to-one basis. Talking to a peer means you are with someone who is equal to you; they are not trained as a professional therapist or a counsellor. They are someone who can put themselves in your shoes.

I can’t thank you enough! I didn’t realise how isolated I was before I joined Peer Support. I’ve been making terrific friends, having lots of laughs and coffee breaks. I am more relaxed and I’ve been having a ball of a time! The staff are incredibly dedicated and send such lovely messages – it’s great to feel part of a community.
