KW Counselling Services - November 2016

Thank you for your support

In 2007 KW Counselling Services launched one of the very first Walk In Counselling Clinics in the world. We open the doors each Thursday to welcome people in their moment of need and allow them to see one of our psychotherapists.
The Walk In Counselling Clinic has grown in popularity over the course of the past nine years with the number of visitors steadily climbing from an average of 30 visitors per week to a record 96 in March of 2016!  We are unaware of a similar service anywhere that serves more clients in one day. 

One unexpected benefit to the Walk In Counselling Clinic is its usefulness to men.  Men are known to service and healthcare providers for their inability to seek help.  Their tendency to not ask for help has a profound and concerning effect on their health.  It is even known to predict men’s mortality.  You can imagine how thrilled we were to learn that fully half of our Walk In visitors are men.  This compared to traditional counselling services where only 37% of visitors are men.  This is astonishing!  We are on to something and I am confident it is improving, and even saving, men’s lives.

Yet the staggering demand has surpassed our current resources and we rely on donations to make sure no one is turned away.  Please join us in making counselling available to people in the moment of need.  Support us in creating a caring community where no one is left behind, where positive relationships are valued as our highest achievement.
