THE LISTENING LOUNGE
access online therapy
We lead increasingly busy lives and it can be difficult to find the time to look after our mental wellbeing. SilverCloud provides a flexible, accessible and convenient solution that you can access online or via the SilverCloud app.
There's a range of different programmes available so you can access information that's relevant to you. Each programme can be accessed as a self-help tool or as a supported option, where you're in touch with one of the team along the way.
chat with a peer worker
We know there is such value in sharing experiences. Our peers have all had a problem with their own mental health at some stage and understand first-hand how difficult this can be.
You can drop in for an informal chat over a cuppa any time between our opening hours.
You might also like to join our peer-led support group, LINC Community. You can find more information by clicking the button below.
What is it?
The Listening Lounge aims to support islanders with their mental health and wellbeing. Our team of counsellors and peer workers provide a range of different support options which can all be accessed free of charge and without the need for a referral.
We are open from 10am until 10pm, 7 days a week.
You can visit the lounge anytime during our opening hours and there is no need to make an appointment in advance.
We are located at Charles House, Charles Street, St Helier, JE24SF (access via Ingouville Place).
Please note - restrictions are in place due to COVID-19. As such, we're unable to meet with anyone in person at the moment and the lounge space is currently closed. However, our counselling and peer team are STILL AVAILABLE to support you from 10am-10pm, 7 days a week. Please give us a call instead on 01534 866793.
Self refer for counselling
You're able to self-refer to our counselling service by completing a short form. We then arrange an initial assessment for you with one of our counselling team. Following this, if we are an appropriate service to support you, you can meet with your counsellor on an individual basis, usually at weekly intervals for up to six sessions.
If an alternative service will be best placed to support you, your counsellor will discuss these options with you. We're able to refer to several other services.
If you'd like information about mental health or other services that could support you, drop in and speak with one of the team.
We work collaboratively with many other agencies in Jersey and have information and leaflets available.
