SUPPORT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
WHAT'S ON WHILE WE'RE ISOLATED?
WE'VE GOT LIVE STREAMS, ZOOM GROUPS and telephone counselling TO SUPPORT YOU WHILE OUR LOCATIONS ARE CLOSED.
Since returning from the Easter break Visyon are now offering our full range of telephone and online services. While we are providing support remotely our offer has changed slightly so that we are acting in line with government guidance.
We will be releasing weekly schedules here https://www.visyon.org.uk/groups so that you can stay up to date with what’s going on.
Any young person (13+) or parent can call us if they need a space to talk, no issue is too small and it does not have to be Covid related. We are here to listen call us on 01260 290000, text on 07508074748 or email: email@example.com. We have open access appointments available at various times and days in the week so will work to find one that fits.
We will be sharing information and tips for looking after the emotional health of your family online. Like our Facebook and Instagram page @visyonltd to find out more
Our counsellors and wellbeing workers have been in contact with existing clients to find out the best way to offer support. Together they have agreed what that looks like it may be over the telephone, online or to wait until face to face meetings can resume. If you know an existing client who feels like they need more help they can call us on 01260 290000 for a chat.
We are taking new referrals as normal. Just call us on 01260 290000 and we will talk through our next steps. We only work with the consent of the referral so ideally we would want the young person/carer to call us themselves.
If you're a child or young person living in Cheshire, then guess what - we will try our best to support you the best way we can! Whether that's by supporting you ourselves, or pointing you in the direction of someone who would be able to support you more than we would. We can offer you a range of services, from counselling, to wellbeing groups, to mentoring, and the amazing thing? You don't just have to stick to one, if you find that a different form of support would suit you better then we'll do our best to help that happen and support you however we can.
We offer open access sessions across our main bases which you can attend to discuss the different forms of support we offer and the best ways we could support you!
We offer various different creative wellbeing groups where you can get support from our Wellbeing Workers in small social environments. Groups range from gardening to painting and even to singing!
We offer counselling sessions all across Cheshire East and into Staffordshire Moorlands for children and young people to support their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
I feel counselling with Visyon has helped me get back on my feet and begin to like myself again.
I think Visyon has helped me a lot over the six weeks of coming, I have felt better every week after sharing how I feel.
Counselling has helped me to understand myself better and feel more confident in managing stress
I'm able to cope more easily when feeling sad and I feel happier now. Visyon is somewhere I feel safe because it is a calm and fun place.
