Every year, Time to Talk Day encourages people to start a conversation about their mental health.
At The Counselling Centre, we’re big supporters of this campaign’s central message. We know how talking can change lives for the better, whether that’s sharing a story with friends or accessing professional help through an affordable, accessible and accredited service, such as the one we provide here in Tunbridge Wells.
You can find out more about Time to Talk Day on the campaign website, and on this page you can find a curated selection of articles about the power of talking and how counselling can help you unlock a more positive outlook on life.
If you have any questions about anything you read here, or about mental health more generally, then make sure to get in touch – we’re always here to listen.
