African and African Caribbean service
The African and Caribbean service has been running successfully alongside Greenwich Mind’s other counselling services. The counselling service is culturally specific to clients of African and Caribbean background or for clients of dual heritage from this background. We also see clients who have a partner or specific connection with this culture. The clients we see are aged 18+ and reside in the Royal borough of Greenwich. We offer counselling at venues across the borough, Woolwich, Plumstead , Westcombe Park and we are also extending into Thamesmead and Abbey Wood.
We offer short term and long term counselling, counselling assessments and crisis appointments. We offer group work and run an African and Caribbean Women’s self esteem group which now runs consecutively across the borough. We aim to develop more in the area of group work and hope to run a men’s self development group. We have a team of counsellors skilled in cultural issues specific to the BME community in Greenwich, Some also speak some of the mainstream west African languages as well as French and Spanish and Jamaican Patwa. We look forward to working with you!
