The Foundation is grateful to local mumtrepreneur Bharti Lim, of Bee-utiful Creations for choosing us as a local charity to partner with.
Bharti Lim was recently thinking of shutting doors on her business, but had a change of heart when she decided that she wanted to do more to support mental health. So her business lives on, to help local charity The Counselling Foundation, by donating 20% of the profits from sales of her incredible “bee collection”.
” I am a huge advocate of counselling. For me it was mental health related but it could be for all sorts of reasons. I believe counselling should be available to everyone but it’s expensive and can be long term. So in order to do my bit I want to help others have the ability to access counselling if they want to take that route.” Bharti Lim
“As an advocate of the benefits that talking therapy can offer, we are sincerely grateful and honoured to be partnering with such an amazing ambassador for mental wellbeing and women in business. Thank you Bee!” Becci Murtagh, Head of Marketing.
One in four people suffer from a range of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, bereavement or life changing events. Counselling can improve family life, reduce isolation and encourage people back into paid or volunteering work.
We believe everyone should have someone to talk to and we offer subsidised counselling on a sliding scale of fees where we ask clients to make a contribution towards the cost of their weekly session based on income, subject to a minimum fee.
The Counselling Foundation receive no government funding and to ensure we continue to maintain the subsidised element of our counselling service for those that need it, public donations are crucial. The charity requires £250,000 from fundraising and its’ other ventures to support this work. Every pound that is donated will go directly to top up weekly charitable counselling sessions for those on low incomes.
