Open letter to Qualified Psychotherapists and Counsellors

I hope that this letter finds you and your family well. I am writing to give you an update on Kids Inspire’s current position. We are still fully operational, seeing 95% of our service users online, 5% of the most vulnerable individuals face to face but following all protocols. 

I am reaching out to ask for your support as part of Kids Inspire’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Talk together is a new project that has been set up in recognition of the impact of the coronavirus on mental health. It aims to reach vulnerable children and families locally who have fallen victim to their new set of circumstances.  

In addition to our existing service users, online support is being made available for parents/carers and children, as well as an online consultation service for teachers, health workers and other key workers.

The specialist bespoke therapy offered at Kids Inspire will focus on nurturing the strengths of a child and family to build resilience during this unprecedented time.

This is a call to action for Qualified Psychotherapists and Counsellors who can offer 2-3 hours per week on a voluntary basis to join our online ‘Talk Together’ service, where those in need of a trained, empathetic ear can receive an assessment to help meet their emotional needs through this challenging time.

If you or anyone you know is a registered counsellor or therapist, please share and reach out to us on admin@kidsinspire.org.uk to express your interest.

Thank you,

Sue Bell
CEO and Clinical Director
