No thank you
I would like online counselling through video-call

I would like in person face to face counselling
I would like in person Art Therapy
We also have an art therapist available IN PERSON on Wednesdays and Saturdays 10am - 2pm. 

Art Therapy has a shorter waiting list than traditional counselling. 

Art therapy works similarly to counselling in that the therapist uses counselling skills to talk through the issues affecting you, but the difference is they use creative activities, such as painting, drawing or others, in order to help you explore the things of concern to you. 

Please indicate below to show if you would be interested in art therapy.  *

Open Minds are part of an alliance of organisations who work together to improve people's lives.

Occasionally Open Minds may identify that our clients might benefit from additional support, and would like permission to discuss with alliance members whether they can provide this support. 

This does not mean you have to access any support that you are offered. 
The IMP;ACT Team provide support to people who have attempted suicide. Please indicate below if we have your consent to refer you to IMP;ACT, alongside counselling, where appropriate. 

This does not mean you have to work with the IMP;ACT service, only that they have permission to contact you to offer more support if applicable.
