The Samaritans are a charity available 24 hours a day offering a free confidential listening service to anyone in distress. They also work to raise awareness of issues related to mind disorders such as suicide and depression.
This organisation was first established in London in 1953 but it wasn’t until 1957 that it was recognised as a charity with a telephone helpline. Only a small number of independent branches were around during the 50’s and 60’s but there are now 203 Samaritan locations around the UK all of which offer their support at any time of the day to anyone who needs someone to talk to.
The volunteers at Samaritans are not professional counsellors, however they are trained to be excellent listeners and to empathise with each individual and their issue. They will not judge you in any way and they offer complete confidentiality. Please call 116 123
Can I get free therapy or counselling?
If you want to try a talking therapy, ask your GP. They will know what’s available locally and can help you decide which treatment is best for you.
Lots of GP surgeries provide counselling or therapy services on the NHS. If counselling or therapy isn’t available at the surgery, your GP may refer you to a local psychological therapies service.
You may also be able to self-refer for counselling or therapy. This means you contact the psychological therapies service directly yourself. You may want to discuss it with your GP first.
