NW Counselling Hub
NWCH was founded on 1st April 2017 by Naomi Watkins and Alex Parkin. As co-founders, we felt that there were gaps in the local community for supporting people’s mental health and wellbeing. We decided to create the Counselling Hub to aim to fill these gaps. We provide a central hub to support children, young people, adults, families and couples within Lincolnshire.
How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it?
We provide a counselling service where our counsellors are ASIST trained. We complete assessments and support clients when they have suicidal ideation or intention.
We have a low waiting list and can get funding for clients to see a trained and experienced counsellor quickly.
What are your current priorities?
We plan to support those affected by suicide by providing a high quality counselling and support service to all those affected by suicide in Lincolnshire.
What challenges are you currently facing?
The challenges are lack of resources, funding and multi-agency working.
