Counselling @ mosaic
mosaic offers a free, professional counselling where counsellors are supervised by a trained supervisor.
Counselling @ mosaic developed from the Antenna Service which was founded in 1995 as a result of the hard work of Wendy Bonser and the Leicestershire Disabled Support group (which has now disbanded).
The key features about Counselling @ mosaic are:
- It is free
- It operates on a first come first served basis
- It can take place in someone’s own home rather than having to go to an office – although you can choose wherever you want to receive counselling.
- It is not time limited
- It is carried out by trained volunteers
- It is open to all disabled people over the age of 18 years but not to non-disabled people or carers, paid or unpaid, unless they are a disabled person themselves
If you want counselling from mosaic all you have to do is to ring us up and tell us (or you can get someone to do it on your behalf).. We will send someone out to your home to talk to you about the service (and our other services). We will ask you why you want counselling and what you want from it. This is what could be called an ‘assessment’.
If after this you still want to receive counselling @ mosaic then your name will be put on our waiting list. People are only put on the waiting list if they themselves want to receive counselling no matter how much someone else thinks it is a good idea. It is always difficult to say how long you will have to wait because it depends on how quickly other people finish their counselling.
If you want more information or to request counselling contact Michael Brittain on 0116 2318720.
