Terrence Higgings Trust (THT) London
THT have altered some routine elements of their counselling service in order to increase accessibility for African people. THT’s Youth Counselling Service devised a street-to-counselling intervention whereby trained counsellors interact with young people in non-therapeutic settings in order to become known and trusted. Where counselling need is identiﬁed, young people can meet with counsellors in more formal settings once trust has been established. In addition, whereas many organisations may be quite strict about missed appointments and locations for adult counselling sessions, THT has found that increased ﬂexibility helps to account for individual needs (such as sporadic employment, sudden changes in housing and childcare responsibilities). They have supplemented their service with an informal drop-in element, which has also increased accessibility.
