The Philippi Trust is a national charitable organisation that provides counselling and accredited counselling training. The Philippi Trust Counselling Service offers therapy for children aged 5 to 16.
It is provided by qualified counsellors who have additional specialist training in working with children and families. Each counsellor is Police checked (DBS).
Philippi Trust Counselling Service uses Clinical Governance to assess children’s emotional issues before, during and at the end of therapy.
We work with children who have a broad range of issues to work through. Counselling is offered in blocks of 8 sessions. This helps to maintain the integrity of the service provided. As a charitable organisation, we work on a purely donation basis for each session.
Philippi Kids increased its reach to raise awareness of Mental Health in Children by visiting schools across the North West! With the help of the Bridge Community Church of Bolton we borrowed their Youth Bus and created the Child Therapy Bus.
Backed by an enthusiastic team and the eagerness of the pastoral care teams in the school we were able to launch the first awareness day on February 16th 2018 seeing more than 200 children in the day.
We had a fantastic response and more pastoral teams are keen to work with us to spread the word to the younger generation.
Providing this service costs money and exceeds the donations that we receive via clients in the community.
We hope to continue our donation only work, so that we are not turning away those that need our help, but cannot afford counselling due to their circumstances.
You can help us to continue our work, helping those in need when they are at their most vulnerable.
If you could donate just £2 a month (that’s only 50p a week!) you would make a huge difference to this valuable and much needed cause.
The Philippi Trust works throughout the UK, and all donations go into improving our services and facilities, so that we can help more people live the fulfilling lives they deserve.
