FREE ONE-TO-ONE SUPPORT

For Children and Young People aged 0-25* in Swindon (*18-25 for those with SEND)

When you are not feeling yourself, it’s sometimes difficult to open up to your family, friends or teachers. Some people find it easier to open up to someone who is not so close than to a loved one.

Our one-to-one support is a type of talking therapy where you can speak to a therapeutic practitioner about your feelings, thoughts and behaviours without feeling judged or criticised.

Your practitioner will ensure you have a safe and comfortable space to talk and explore your feelings. Then you will work together to find ways to make you feel better at a pace that is comfortable to you.

You will always see the same therapeutic practitioner during these sessions, so you don’t have to repeat your story to different people when you need support.

Personalised Mental Health Support

When you contact BeU Swindon for the first time, one of our therapeutic practitioners will talk to you about your situation and how you feel.

Then you and your practitioner will decide whether one-to-one support is for you, or if other types of support are better suited to your needs.

During a one-to-one support session, you will be able to explain your story, in your own words.

Your therapeutic practitioner will listen and help you understand the root of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

They will also help you discover your strengths and how to apply them to overcome any difficulties you may encounter.

You will work together finding ways to reach your goals, at a pace that is comfortable to you, with no pressure

Your key worker will not tell you what to do. Instead, you will work together finding ways to reach your goals, at a pace that is comfortable to you, with no pressure.

You may be given some guided self-help, which is advice on coping strategies you can try by yourself to help you manage your mood and feel better, or your therapeutic practitioner may invite you to join one of our group support sessions.

Why talking is important

Previous experiences and life events can affect how you think, feel, behave and relate to others, even if you are not aware of it.

Sharing your feelings can help you understand why you are sad, angry or overwhelmed, so then it’s easier to find ways to cope with the problems that have been bothering you for a while.

Talking to others without being judged is relieving, because you can get things off your chest while feeling supported, understood and less lonely.

Talking about your feelings doesn’t mean you are weak! It’s a brave decision and a sign that you are trying your best to stay healthy and happy.
