Ty Elis- Recognising the importance of counselling

Recently, I hosted an event for T? Elis Counselling Service at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay. Based in Porthcawl, T? Elis is a charity that has been in practice since 1996 and provides counselling and psychotherapy services. The aim of the event was to raise the profile of the organisation and to draw attention to the work of the 40 counsellors who work to improve the mental wellbeing of individuals in need.

At T? Elis, the staff do not label their clients with diagnoses, instead they prefer to focus on working with them to regain their autonomy and take responsibility and control for the issues affecting their lives.

At the event, T? Elis staff had an opportunity to speak to Assembly Members and Support Staff about the services that they offer and to inform them of their new Workplace Mental Wellbeing Training that they can offer businesses.

I was delighted to host this important event at the Senedd. It was a great opportunity for the charity to raise its profile and to promote their services. I would also like to pay tribute to all those who volunteer at T? Elis and provide such a valuable and worthwhile service.
