Time to Listen remains an essential therapeutic service. Therefore through the current national lockdown we remain open to new referrals and continue to provide face to face (in-the-room) sessions within stringent COVID-19 safety measures. We also provide remote/online sessions if preferred.

Time to Listen are dependant upon charitable funds and fundraising to ensure counselling and therapeutic services are accessible to local children, young people and families who would otherwise be unable to access such support.
This is particularly important as demand upon our services is ever-growing. You can read more about our fundraising campaign and donate here:

We are here to help you with your worries, troubles, anger and anything else that is getting in the way of you just being happy. It is a place to talk about the big things that might be causing you to get upset or feel bad. Sometimes the big things might be because of school, family or friends.
Time to Listen is here to help you talk about your feelings, thoughts and troubles and help you make good choices for yourself, all the way through the adoption process.
Time to Listen employs a wide range of Counselling and Therapy models, each adapted to the client, be it child, young person, adult, family or a situation such as a school. From EMDR to Family Systems Therapy to Anger Management Workshops amongst others, we are able to use the most appropriate pathway to get to the destination.
Our expertise, developed by Time to Listen members over many years, enables us to offer training to individuals and organisations, including schools. The benefit of sound training is to be found in the confidence of subsequent working methods, and helps in being both effective in outcome and in terms of cost.
By offering effective support, we can help magnify the efforts of others. From individual clients, to families and organisations, good support bridges potential crisis points, and adds value to work being done. This allows each person to concentrate on what really matters, without distractions and unnecessary worry.
Funding grants successfully awarded from the following have enabled Time to Listen to thrive and grow as an essential therapeutic service despite the COVID-19 pandemic. This funding has enabled Time to Listen to continue being responsive to the needs of our local communities.
