Person centred Non-clinical Peer Support

We are here to help if you are experiencing long-term complex trauma, finding it difficult to engage with other services or feel that other services are currently not meeting your needs. We provide trauma-informed emotional support, on a 1-2-1 basis over a 12-week period.

Referrals can be submitted by a professional once you’ve given your consent. Should your professional need further details, e.g. a copy of the referral form they can call The Cellar Trust on 01274 586474, to leave a message for the Hope team. Feel free to also leave a message if you have additional questions about the service.

What to expect

Week 1

You will meet your peer support worker. We will explain the scope of support you can expect and talk about the importance of setting boundaries.
You will need to complete a data protection form and mental wellbeing questionnaire.

Week 2

This week we will discuss your experiences. It’s a chance for you to talk about what’s been happening for you. We will explore these experiences and perceptions together.

Week 3

We will continue with our discussion from week 2, identifying your goals and the barriers. We will also begin action planning so that we can work towards achieving those goals and overcoming any barriers.

Week 4-6

During this time we will breakdown your action plan and make priorities along the way.

Week 7

We are now half way through so we will review your progress to date, and remaining goals. This week we will also begin to prepare for what happens at the end of your time with us.

Week 8-11

We will continue to review your priorities and action plan. We will also identify and arrange any long term support you might need.

Week 12

This is your final session. We will take a look back and review all of your progress. We will also take a look at any actions or next steps.
This session will be used to gather your feedback with a follow-up questionnaire.
You can also use this session to sign-up to a peer support group or further training. You can also join the Being Well in Adversity Group.

“The support has been invaluable and genuine, I feel like I finally have some fight back within myself.”
