Let’s Talk Counselling
This service provides professional counselling for clients experiencing emotional distress. Services support clients to develop a better understanding of their experiences and to gain strategies to manage these. We work with a range of counsellors with diverse backgrounds who are allocated appropriately to support individual clients. Each counsellor works within the ethical framework provided by the British Association of Counselling Professionals (BACP).
Let’s Talk Grounds Maintenance
Let’s Talk Grounds Maintenance provides professional services to public, private, voluntary, community and social enterprise sector organisations wishing to commission high quality grounds maintenance services. Working within strict health and safety guidelines, individuals with lived experience of mental health conditions are contracted as Grounds Maintenance Operators to provide a reliable year round service.
