Deaf4Deaf want to remove the need for counselling using interpreters that is not appropriate in most cases
We want to offer the NHS a cost-effective service that is qualified in Step 2 (early intervention) and Step 3 (high intensity) counselling and psychotherapy.
We want to remove the need for counselling using interpreters that is not appropriate in most cases for the Deaf community. If we reduce the overall cost to the NHS, we can offer an essential counselling.
When we created Deaf4Deaf, we felt there was not a national service that offered privately paid counselling service that covered a wide range of communication styles of sign language.
Our Deaf focused team can communicate using:
- BSL (British sign language)
- ISL (Irish sign language)
- SSE (signed supported English)
- ASL (American Sign Language)
- Orally (lip-reading, visual expressions)
