Counselling & Psychotherapy sessions

Funded one-to-one Counselling / Psychotherapy sessions for children and young adults, in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.  

In 2023 Callum’s Voice were able to fully fund over 500 counselling sessions (for over 40 children and young people) 228 of which (19 children and young people) were thanks to funding from The National Lottery Awards for all.

We have been working with Green Lane Counselling and Psychotherapy and Mary Kelly Therapy to provide this vital service.

We did it Callum!

We are so proud to share the news that we have been successful in securing £19,980 from The National Lottery Community Fund for our funded counselling project.

National Lottery Funding

Here is Laura, Callum’s mum and founder of our charity ‘Callum’s Voice’ proudly holding our National Lottery cheque.

This week (5-11 February) is Children’s mental health week and this year’s theme is ‘my voice matters’.

Callum’s Voice aims to: ‘empower young people so that their voices are heard’ through providing these funded counselling and psychotherapy sessions and through our other work/projects.

This grant is to fund counselling sessions over the next two years for around 37 children for up to a maximum of 12 sessions. We will therefore open our referrals on a quarterly basis & will unfortunately, have to limit the amount that we can accept each quarter. We will monitor the position closely, and rest assured, will accept as many referrals as we can. We hope that you can appreciate the need for us to place these limits as demand for the service is high.

Any donations that we receive towards the cost of the sessions will enable us to to help more children and young people.

The Referral

Step 1: Complete the referral form below:

Step 2: The referral will be reviewed by a Counsellor to ensure the support they can offer is going to be appropriate.

Step 3: A Counsellor will then contact you to arrange an initial assessment/meeting to discuss how you are feeling and how counselling may help you.

The child/young adult and Counsellor will be best matched accordingly.

Please note:

Whilst we endeavour to ensure counselling sessions commence quickly, there may at times be a wait.

We welcome voluntary contributions towards the cost of the counselling sessions to enable us to help more children and young people, though this is not essential. 

If you have received funded Counselling/Psychotherapy sessions from us and would like to make a small donation we would be most grateful.

The donate button will take you to our page on where you can donate a small amount, which helps us to carry on helping others.

If you would prefer to make a donation a different way please do get in touch with us.

Thank you
