You First Therapeutic Services (YFTS) exists to help fill the gap for those seeking support around their mental health. YFTS supports the mental wellbeing of adults and young people ages 11+.
Some people just need to talk with someone who will listen without judgement. YFTS offers this, but at a lower cost.
Although I live in central Norfolk I offer my services county wide including Waveney. I understand that the need for support is everywhere so I try to be flexible with the service offer where I can, so do get in touch with any questions.
We all have mental health as we all have a physical health and like our physical health it can change throughout our lives especially at times when we feel alone or isolated.
I have worked within caring and person focused settings for over 10 years. In this time I have been a Key Worker for vulnerable adults and young people within, a Mentor, a Community and Engagement Officer for Healthwatch Norfolk, a Youth Worker and a Youth Mental Health Worker for MAP the youth charity, as well as other roles in the public and third sectors.
Due to a lack of funding, awareness, time, and resources coupled with long waiting times and untailored or inappropriate support, I have heard and seen both adults and young people fall through the gaps of services.
I will always have an honest conversation with you to gauge whether my service is appropriate. If it is not, I will signpost to other services where possible.
Please see below for more details about my service offer.
