What do we offer? 

Free and confidential time-limited individual and group psychotherapy/counselling to people 55 and over who are registered with a GP surgery in Camden. The services are open to people of all ethnic and cultural groups, and those who identify as LGBT. Home visits can be arranged for people with limited mobility. Counselling is also offered to people with dementia in the early stages or with memory issues. Weekly regular sessions can provide valuable and confidential support where people can begin to explore any difficult feelings or concerns they may have. 

Here is a short film to find out more about the benefits of counselling to older people. 
 
Age UK Camden also offers a range of services including information and advice, dementia services, care navigators, direct payment support officers and befriending - to name but a few. Read about services.
 
Age UK Camden is part of Ageing Better in Camden, a partnership of older people and Camden organisations, working together to tackle social isolation and loneliness among older people.
