At Phoenix we believe that we all have the right to define our own experiences, map our own course through life, do the things we love and share these moments with others. Sometimes our mental health and life experiences can make this more challenging. Our Phoenix Wellbeing & Recovery Service can help. We offer a range of options to support your recovery and emotional health so that you can choose what works best for you.

Hearing Voices One-to-One Support: support with making sense of your voices, visions and other sensory experiences.
Counselling: we have limited availability for counselling, as we provide a longer term service – we offer 24 weeks of talking therapy. This is provided by a psychotherapist in training. It is available on weekdays only, in a fixed-time slot between the hours of 10am and 4pm. Assessment appointments are free, and the sessions are charged on a sliding scale from £12.50 depending on income.
As demand for this service is so high and our counsellors are so few, we don’t keep a waiting list.
January 2020: At the moment we have a few slots available. Please call 0207 911 0822 if you are interested in one of these places, or email to email@example.com and we will call you back.
Before booking you in, we will do a short pre-assessment on the phone, so please call when you have fifteen minutes to spare.
