Listening & Counselling

 

space

All volunteers who work for Space and help to facilitate groups are trained in listening skills. If you feel you need time to talk through your problems someone will be available to listen to you.

Space has trained counsellors who can offer you a counselling service if you feel this can help you. Times for these sessions can be negotiated between you and the counsellor. If you would like to know more about this service please do contact us.

 

Comments from individuals who have received help from the counselling service:

Space is an excellent service, very valuable and much needed. It helped to have someone caring to talk to. I’m grateful for a lot of support’.

‘It feels like an air-pocket, a light-house, an oasis. It’s the only space where i feel being loved unconditionally, where my mind and soul are nourished, where i get to know my own humility and others. It is my most effective ‘anti-depressant’ without the harmful side effects. Life without Space? It would feel like being ‘homeless’!’.

‘Counselling is a time to release how you feel if you don’t have someone else to talk to’.

 

Testimonials

Space provides a vital source of support to Aylesbury in a time of much need in our town. (past Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr. Ranjula Takodra)

The Space project does very valuable work within the local community, providing support to many vulnerable people going through hard times for a variety of reasons. The one to one counselling sessions, weekly group drop ins and workshops run by Space help to give their users back a sense of self belief and the ability to work through their problems.

Comments

It provides me with a lot of company.

A place to go when you are feeling alone.

I used to come to Space as a member, seeking support when I was going through a very dark and lonely time. Now life is a lot easier to cope with for me and I enjoy working as a volunteer giving something back and helping others see some light too.
