About this cause

About our cause

Cogwheel was set up 24 years ago to provide counselling and psychotherapy support for people in Cambridgeshire living on limited financial resources who cannot easily access counselling services.1 in 4 people will suffer from mental health problems in the course of a year. Mixed anxiety and depression is the most common mental disorder in Britain. This may be as a result of a traumatic situation but sometimes the causes are less easily identified. Whatever the cause or reason for the disorder, research shows that early intervention is the most effective solution and prevents more complex health and social needs from developing.Cogwheel has a large team of trained counsellors experienced in various psychotherapeutic disciplines and techniques. Our counsellors give their time on a voluntary basis or at subsidised rates so we are able to bring help to substantial numbers of people. In 2015 we provided over 5000 counselling sessions to people in Cambridgeshire. Over two thirds were referred to us by their GPs. All participants, even those on benefits are asked to make an affordable contribution, so that they commit to attending each session.
