More About Us
There may be times in our lives when we all feel unable to cope. The St Barnabas’ vision is a simple one – to help those facing emotional problems who cannot manage this from their own resources, where those less able to pay are not excluded from counselling.
Founded in 1974 our Centre is one of the largest in the region. We take clients (many referred by GPs) from all over Norfolk and some parts of Suffolk.
The St Barnabas Ethos
Around 25% of people have suffered from depression or other mental illness in the UK and demand for counselling continues to rise. We currently have 25 volunteer counsellors (and 9 volunteer reception staff). We support and help clients with a very wide range of issues/problems: some suffer stress and anxiety, depression and despair, eating disorders, bereavement; others want to rescue their relationships or their life.
Funding at St Barnabas
We hold our own fundraising events and gain valuable support from businesses and the public, whilst other income comes from client donations and Friends of St Barnabas. We also rely on the generosity and goodwill of Charitable Trusts (we receive no government or NHS support and are responsible for all our own funding).
This year we need to raise £5,000 to fund this work -
