Please bear in mind that Southwark Carers is a counselling service for people who are carers. We also provide counselling to people who are bereaved. Our counselling will focus on helping people increase their coping strategies and overall resilience, as a carer or as a bereaved person. Such an approach is not designed to help someone with general life issues, mental health and wellbeing issues, and support around advocacy.
Southwark Carer's general practice is that we cannot accept clients for counselling until after they have been assessed and with the agreement of our supervisors. Please do not discharge any clients from your service on the basis of Southwark Carers' counselling service being able to meet all life needs, as our approach is quite focused.
If a client is being discharged from your service shortly after referral to Southwark Carers, please do indicate in writing why this is the case and any needs or risks that we may need to take into account.
