Shielded Counselling Service

Bristol Mind is currently providing a free counselling service to individuals shielding as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The service will run until 30th June 2021, and will be taking referrals until 30th April 2021.

We are primarily looking to provide this service to those in the Bristol wards/areas stated below, and those identified as higher risk, such as BAME residents and older individuals:

Avonmouth, Barton Hill, East Hillfields, Filwood, Hartcliffe & Withywood, Knowle West, Lawrence Hill, Lawrence Weston, Lockleaze, Southmead, St Paul’s, Whitchurch Park

If you are interested in this service, please contact for a registration form.

For this service we are accepting either self-referrals, referrals from family members, or referrals from agencies. Please note that our general ‘Meeting Minds’ counselling service is not free but is low cost, and is self-referral only.
