Relate is aware that some clients have difficulty getting from rural parts to our Centre in Barnstaple.
Our new telephone counselling service will benefit clients who are housebound due to disabilities, child or carer issues or transportation problems.
Pilot projects have proved popular, and the scheme is being rolled out in North Devon.
The service is done by phone rather than face-to-face. And Counsellors have undertaken specialist training to detect nuances of speech and tone rather than body language.
Says development officer Veronica Beckett, “ We want our counselling services to be available to everyone. We are pleased that in this way we can serve the more remote areas of north Devon.
“We hope that this will provide a popular and much-needed service.”
For further information and to book an appointment please phone RELATE NORTH DEVON on 0300 7729681.
