We began in 2013 as an umbrella service for Coventry and Warwickshire Friend and in 2015 expanded to become a separately recognised charity. Friend have been unfailingly supportive of the counselling service and we remain thankful to them as our service expands into a separate organisation. We are a small not-for-profit organisation who provide low-cost counselling to people local to the Coventry and Warwickshire area. Based in the city centre we are easy to get to by public transport, with parking nearby.
Timeout is ‘run’ by LJ and Janey who are both trustees and counsellors, and we also have another counsellor Claire on the trustee board. Our other counsellors are Jen, Alison and Chris. Aside from this we have Caroline, our treasurer and Jess, our intern.
All of our counsellors are either fully qualified or are working towards an accredited qualification. Our counsellors and trainees receive supervision* and are registered with a professional body. We all volunteer our time and rely on donations and grants to continue to offer counselling.
