abBreathe:Listening provides supportive listening to those in need. We have a group of volunteers who come each week and simply listen to individuals, signposting them to services where necessary and allowing them to release any bottled-up feelings in a safe environment.
Supportive listening can, at times, be just as effective as counselling – and can sometimes provide a person in need with a quicker path to resources, given the waiting lists for counsellors currently being experienced in many areas.
