The past 10 months has been tough for everyone, and the latest news of extended lockdowns across the UK is difficult to process. If you’re feeling in need of emotional support and you would like to speak to a professional, we encourage you to book a free appointment with a qualified counsellor or psychotherapist through our partners, The Help Hub.

The Help Hub: Access free, confidential, professional therapy

The Help Hub is a free online emotional support service powered by a network of 800 qualified therapists. They offer 20-minute phone or video calls so you can talk to a professional about any challenges you may be having. Every worry is valid and you can book multiple calls (you’re likely to get a different professional each time).

No matter your current challenges – whether you’re experiencing grief, fear, stress, heightened anxiety, loneliness, burnout or concerns about the future – The Help Hub is there for you.

If you need to talk, we encourage you to sign up for a confidential conversation with one of their volunteers. Whether you’d prefer a phone or a video call, their service is free and every Help Hub member is a trained therapist or counsellor. They promise to listen without judgement, support you and help with ways to move forward where they can. Please get in touch.

Founder of HelpHub Ruth Chaloner took out the Frontline Loneliness Hero award on ITV’s Good Morning Britain. The Help Hub appointment bookings are powered by Timely.
