- One to one therapy, either face to face or via telephone or webcam
- E-mail, telephone and instant message support
- Information resources
- Support from qualified and accredited therapists
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Clinical hypnotherapy
Dave Smithson, our Services Manager was delighted to present to Trustees and Visitors of the ICE Benevolent Fund about the work we do and outlined the additional benefits ICE members and their families will have access to.
“We are delighted to be working with ICE Benevolent Fund” said Dave Smithson. ““We’re extremely pleased to be able to support their beneficiaries by providing timely assistance and interventions for those affected by anxiety, stress and anxiety based depression.
