Thank you!

A huge thanks to the staff and shoppers at Asda Filton for supporting Network. We had a stand in the foyer during Mental Health Awareness Week 2019, and raised a much needed £335.15 to support mental health in our community.

From 13-19 May we will be celebrating positive mental health, and thinking about how we think and feel about our bodies. Body issue images can affect us at any age, so take a look at these tips for self-care.

Our Annual Conference 2019 will be taking place on Friday 10th May, on the theme of “Are we all mad?” We are pleased to be welcoming Karl Gregory as our keynote speaker. For more details click here

David Cahill did it – 120 miles of the Ring of Kerry – you’ve still time to sponsor him to celebrate this brilliant effort.

In his own words … ‘David Cahill is a 60 year old, overweight, grandfather. What kind of crazy guy is he to want to cycle 180 Km (120 miles) in a day, up and down hills – the highest of which is 860 feet above sea level and goes all the way from seaside up a 9% gradient – to the very top. 

Well, he is doing it for Network training and counselling (https://network.org.uk/) cos his wife is a trustee. Network provides low cost counselling to people all over Bristol.  Please support him in this crazy endeavour. ‘


Congratulations to Martin van Eker one of our counsellors who on Friday 18th May completed the 182 mile walk of Offa’s Dyke. Martin has so far collected over £2,000 for Network Counselling.

If you have an idea for a sponsored event that could follow in Martin’s footsteps – and it doesn’t have to be walking then please do let us know at info@network.org.uk

Monday 4th June saw the launch of The Listening Ear Project, a place where people can come, talk, offload in a safe place with a trained volunteer and, where appropriate, be signposted to appropriate agencies and charities.

The Listening Ear Project was developed by Revd Lizzie Gregory and Anne Duke of Network Counselling and Training. Read more about the project here.

We are delighted to announce our inaugural Annual Conference will be taking place on Friday 18th May 2018.  Nick Luxmoore will be joining us to speak on the theme of ‘defining the therapeutic task in  counselling’.
