Counselling Careline Available.
The Masonic Samaritans Fund, which will, of course, become part of the Masonic Charitable Foundation in April (www.mcf.org.uk), wishes to remind all Freemasons, and their eligible dependents, of the availability of their counselling careline. The following is a lift from their website:
"Our Counselling Careline provides immediate help from a qualified counsellor over the phone and can arrange up to six face-to-face counselling sessions for Freemasons or their families.
Everyone feels low at some point in their lives and for those struggling to cope it may be difficult to see beyond their current situation.
That's why we provide access to our Counselling Careline, a completely free and confidential service operated by experienced counselors who will listen and offer professional guidance.
Freemasons and their family members (aged 17+) can access our Counselling Careline telephone service and arrange up to six face-to-face counselling sessions within five working days.
To access our Counselling Careline today, please call 020 7404 1550 or for further information go to www.msfund.org.uk/counselling.php
While most of us would not hesitate to ask for advice about our physical health, we are often reluctant to seek help for our emotional wellbeing to overcome feelings or situations such as:
· uncertainty, growing worry or low moods
· workplace pressures, stress or panic
· bereavement, divorce, bankruptcy or retirement
· illness or family ill-health
For many people deciding to see a counsellor is the first step to feeling more in control of their lives. Feelings of depression, anxiety and stress are very common and can affect anybody for all kinds of reasons such as bereavement, redundancy, family breakdown or illness. It could be a mixture of events or could even arise for no obvious reason.
Counselling is a talking therapy which gives people the chance to explore their thoughts and feelings and the affect they have on their behaviour and mood. The counsellor will help identify what changes could reduce any distress and support a person to consider how to make these changes.
If life’s events feel like a series of uphill challenges, the MSF Counselling Careline is here to help and expert counsellors are waiting to offer their support.
With an average wait of over 65 days for NHS counselling services, don't delay seeking support from the professionals waiting to help.
For instant access to our Counselling Careline, simply call 020 7404 1550 and ask to speak with the grants team who will transfer you to the Careline. There are no application forms to complete and no financial assessment is required.
