Our current service offer is as follows:

‘Check-in & Chat’ telephone service

Since the onset of the Covid19 lockdown, Wirral Mind has responded by offering welfare telephone calls to those people who feel isolated, lonely, anxious and afraid due to being unable to access our services and others. Our Check –in and chat call operatives are on hand to provide practical and emotional support to our community. To make a referral, please contact us on 0151 512 2200 or email [email protected]

Counselling – face-to face, zoom and telephone

Counselling is a type of talking therapy, which involves a trained counsellor listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues. Wirral Mind provides one to one counselling with professional counsellors in a safe and confidential setting. We provide you with space to talk with someone who is experienced in listening, can help you explore and understand your feelings, and help you to discover ways of living more resourcefully.
