What We Do

We provide 1-1 counselling to serving personal, veterans and their families, free at the point of delivery. Our counsellors are BACP registered and have experience working with a variety of issues including bereavement and loss, anxiety and low mood and trauma of all kinds, from childhood abuse to PTSD. We also have have experience working with post addiction recovery and suicidal ideation. All sessions are confidential, and the amount of help is not session limited, so there is no rush to ‘fix’ things. We have rooms in Liverpool and Chester, so if you are struggling or know someone who is, please get in touch and find out how we can help – and remember IT’S FREE. Just call us on the number above or email us and someone will make contact with you.

Training

Egg Banjos provides a half day training module for veterans, employers and community organisations to discuss the specific nature of mental ill health in the veteran’s community. We cover topics such as; why so few veteran’s seek help for mental health issues, understanding the stigma behind admitting perceived weakness in British Forces culture and recognising signs and symptoms of a veteran asking for help without actually asking. This training module runs monthly in Liverpool and can be brought to your organisation or workplace.
