121 Adult Counselling
‘121 Adult Counselling offers a safe and confidential space for a person to explore their experiences and emotions without fear of judgement’
121 Adult Counselling is offered by Hart Voluntary Action. We are offering up to 20 one-to-one Counselling sessions on a weekly basis with the same Counsellor each week. Each session will last for 50 minutes and will be at the same time and place every week. All clients will have an assessment session to assess suitability for Counselling.
The service is free to access.

The aim is to provide support which enables people to reduce the risk of harm to themselves and to build resilience to help them support themselves in the future.

What is Counselling?
Counselling is a safe and confidential space for a person to talk freely about things that concern them or to explore the thoughts and feelings that they are having or to talk through ways to deal with the situations they are in. It can help a person come to their own conclusions about what they need to do.
A Counsellor will not offer advice and they will not diagnose mental health conditions.
Where does the Counselling take place?
Sessions can take place face-to-face or via Zoom video calling. At present face-to-face sessions will take place at Odiham Cottage Hospital.
What happens once Counselling finishes?
If you would still like some support once you have completed your 20 sessions the option of joining an anxiety and depression support group with our Sunshine and Showers project could be offered or you may be signposted to alternative services.
This service is not able to support people who are in crisis or who have a high level of need.
