Dear God...
“Hardly anyone can ever find God because God is right at the end of your mind after all the background thoughts are gone.”

St Martin's Centre for Health and Healing
Situational Counselling and Psycological Wellbeing Support

St Martin’s Centre for Health and Healing mission to support vulnerable people is more relevant today than ever.  In response to the needs raised by the pandemic we launched a new service delivering Situational Counselling and Psychological Wellbeing support.

With the support of Westhill Endowment we were able to respond positively to the 70% increase in demand for support with mental health issues as a direct result of Covid-19. Over a period of 8 months from May 2020 our new Situational Counselling and Psychological Wellbeing service provided 3,000 sessions to over 1,000 people. 

The service provided a rapid response service based on a limited number of 2-4 sessions over the telephone and via video, with people received a guaranteed response within a few hours of contacting team of over 50 therapists contributing to this new initiative.
 
The objectives of this service included emphasizing investigating of the client problem; problem solving; client strengths and resources, and the facilitation of positive change.
