Somerset telephone counselling launched

Available January 2017

24/01/2017

RELATE in Taunton and West Somerset are pleased to announce the launch of a new counselling service.


Relate has been aware, for some time, that due to areas in West Somerset being so rural it is not always possible for clients to get to our Centre in Taunton easily. 


We have set up a telephone counselling service in order to benefit those clients who might be housebound due to disabilities, child or carer issues or transportation problems. Some clients prefer to be counselled by phone rather than face-to-face.


Counsellors undertake specialist training in order to detect nuances of speech and tone rather than body language.The counsellor can speak to couples as well as individuals.


Says development officer Veronica Beckett “ We want our counselling services to be available to everyone and are pleased that we can serve the more remote areas of Somerset in this way. There are many reasons why clients cannot always get to us and we hope that this will provide another, much needed service.”


For further information and to book an appointment please phone RELATE TAUNTON and WEST SOMERSET on 0300 7729681.
