A very warm welcome to Hampshire’s share of the work of the Family Counselling Trust.

As the rest of our website describes, we provide qualified and experienced early support to children, young people (up to 18) and their families across Hampshire.

If you think you need help, you can refer yourself to us by emailing Jane, our friendly Family Liaison Officer (FLO): flo-hampshire@familycounsellingtrust.org  or calling: 07538 029 210 & you do not need to ask anyone else to help you to do so. We want to help sooner, rather than later when behaviour might become entrenched.

Like everyone else, we have had to make big adjustments in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We now have an excellent & growing team of child and family psychotherapists based all over the county, who have worked hard to learn what is needed virtually in order to be able to help children & their families – whatever size & shape that family may take.  At the moment we are offering telephone consultations and online video counselling, by appointment.

We have had our work acknowledged as making an important contribution, with significant grants this month from the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation under the NET fund, and another from the MIND Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund. We are truly grateful to the enlightened support from these & other organisations.

We know that lockdown has been very hard for everyone, however much you love one another. If you are wondering if you need help, please do contact Jane, our friendly Family Liaison Officer (FLO) – 07538 029 210 – much better to deal with these problems as early as possible. https://familycounsellingtrust.org/contact/

YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
