The Psychological Therapies Unit CIC has set up a free telephone service, staffed by volunteers trained in talking therapies, to offer short, frequent calls to people struggling with the current situation.
The Liverpool-based non-profit organisation has suspended all face-to-face therapeutic sessions but the telephone service, entitled ‘Let’s Keep Talking’ aims to help people feel less alone during this challenging time.
A statement from The Psychological Therapies Unit read; ‘During these difficult times when our social contact with each other is limited, we would like to make a small contribution to helping keep people feeling sane and connected.
‘We aim to do this through the simple act of talking, perhaps just for 10 or 15 minutes on a regular basis, over the phone, to anyone who is feeling isolated, frustrated or scared by their current situation, or who would like a chat about making the best of a difficult time.’
To access the service call or text Kate on 07894 612249 or email firstname.lastname@example.org (including your phone number in the message).
