Important changes at FLS ...
FLS is a satellite service of Inspire Counselling and Training and has been active in Felixstowe since 2012. Since we began over 120 clients have received our support whilst many churches, groups and individuals have undertaken training in aspects of pastoral care, listening skills and counselling. We believe that we have equipped many people to provide constructive and effective care for others and that the outworking of this is being demonstrated in the community.
Changes in demand and in how we are able to resource the Service mean that we have had to make the difficult decision to close FLS in January 2019. We are therefore unable to accept new referrals for listening or counselling clients.
We are incredibly grateful for the support, generosity and encouragement offered by so many people, which has enabled us to deliver our services in Felixstowe. We are also aware that there are a significant number of organisations, agencies and individuals who will continue to provide professional care and support, to improve the emotional wellbeing of those who need it in the town and surrounding areas.
Inspire will continue to provide counselling for individuals and couples, aged 18 and over, from our home at the Fletcher Centre in Ipswich. We will also continue to provide training to those who would like to develop their pastoral, listening or counselling skills and hope to be able to offer this in Felixstowe; please do contact us if this would be of interest to you.
If you would like to access counselling through Inspire, or discuss alternative sources of help and support, please contact us here or on 01473 217694.
