Why are we moving?
The last nine months have been extraordinary for many of us. At Help Counselling, we have not been standing still, and we have continued to support the community at a time of increasing need. Providing our usual face to face service has not been possible as our office on Portobello Road is not set up to meet the required COVID workplace guidelines. Instead, our team has been working hard to move our counselling services on-line. These changes have to lead to challenges along the way, but we can see that using technology will unlock opportunities to provide our services to our clients in new ways and expand our reach. We are still developing and improving our new remote support services and will have more details to share early next year.
To best support these changes, we have also decided it is time to move our location ad interim. This change has not been an easy decision, but it is one we needed to make to ensure our small charity has a future and can continue its vital work.
So, from January 1st, 2021, our new address will be
9 Orme Court London, W2 4RL
Our interim office set up
The office above will provide the administrative base for our operations on Mondays and give us the flexibility to work and meet there periodically. However, in line with the latest government guidelines, our office team will work remotely to deliver our counselling services. They remain fully available and accessible; mobile phone, email and online conferencing are the most effective means of communicating with us.
Alongside online counselling, we do hope that we can get back to face to face services from a new location as soon as we can do so safely. We will provide updates on our plans when we can.
