Our Mission Statement

At Sociability our main focus is to improve and/or maintain peoples mental wellbeing. However, through our experience we understand that to achieve each person’s maximum level of wellness, there can be a multitude of factors which influence each person’s utmost achievable mental and physical wellbeing. Which is why Sociability maintains a framework structured around a person-centred holistic approach to our clients. Our psychotherapist has an honours degree in person-centred counselling. A member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, Sociability are committed to maintaining the BACPs ethical framework when working with our clients. Sociability targets the development of each person’s integral ability to cope through self-help methods, empowering them to make their own choices, live healthy, active both physically and mentally, with support from their Sociability peer support network.

Activities & Sessions

Sociability provides a variety of meaningful activities designed to challenge unhealthy patterns of behaviour and improve mental wellbeing.

To find out what activities are available, a description covering all activities are over on our sessions page.

Personal Health Budgets

PHBs are regarded as a means of giving you more control over the support you receive. They provide you with the option to decide where you believe you would receive the best support. If you have been under the mental health team within the last six months or you are on their records, you should be eligible.

For more information on Personal Health Budgets or to reserve an assessment, visit our Personal Health Budget page.
