Promoting good practice and offering support
CFC present inspirational videos
This year The Counselling & Family Centre were invited to take part in an innovative event to support the well-being of young people and their families.
It’s called RESET 2020.
RESET unites young people, parents, carers, professionals and service providers in a three day event to promote good practice and to offer support as well as share stories of challenges and success.
We presented 3 short videos at the event to highlight who we are, what we do and why our work is so very important to the community.
Sarah Pipping has presented a personal take on why she became a counsellor and her specialisms, the personal benefits of her role and her opinion on how The Counselling & Family Centre as an organisation benefit Children and Young People and how her role benefits the community in the longer term.
Sarah Barker has presented a superb overview on her activity within the organisation as Children’s Services Manager, focussing on our work in schools: what that service means to schools, and how important the impact of counselling is to our children and their future in education and beyond. Sarah uses our statistics and data to illustrate the positive outcomes of this never more needed provision.
Jim Sales has brought us a wonderful insight into his role supporting the wider community, talking about all the free services he facilitates as part of the remit of The Counselling & Family Centre, including our Bereavement and our Affected by Addiction groups amongst others. He also displays his passion for the community allotment project and why that means so much to people that don’t usually have access to a working greenspace.
All three of our colleagues have put huge effort into making sure all of these much needed services are accessible and provided to the highest possible standards. Please do take a moment to watch them talk passionately about why it is so important to them personally and to the communities they serve.
