Paradigm Foundation supports mental health counselling for those on low incomes

Posted on the 29th May 2018

An award of £3,000 has made all the difference to South Bucks Counselling based in High Wycombe.

The service offers a professional and confidential one-to-one counselling service for adults in the local area helping people cope with issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, parenting issues and personality disorders.

The grant has been used to set up a client subsidy fund. The fund enables South Bucks Counselling to offer professional mental health counselling to those in need who otherwise would not be able to afford such a service. This may be people on low incomes, single parent families, unemployed or in receipt of social security payments. The service needs to cover basic costs such as rental of premises, professional supervision of counsellors and basic office administration services, so the grant is used to support those who cannot pay the normal fee. South Bucks Counselling is proud to say they never turn clients in need away.

Andrew Wilton from South Bucks Counselling Services commented: “The Paradigm Foundation grant has enabled South Bucks Counselling to help individuals cope with and work through their difficulties and make positive changes in their lives. By doing so, we also help their family, friends and work colleagues and so build stronger communities. Without grants like yours we would not be able to offer this service to anyone who could not afford the full fee. Our client subsidy fund supports around 30 clients each year.”
