We are a Qualified Team of Deaf & Hearing Counsellors
D4D has a large team of Deaf focused therapists from different backgrounds. Our therapists are both hearing and Deaf, each therapist comes from a Deaf background.
You can choose a therapist, whether you want to work short-term on a problem that is currently troubling you, or longer-term to explore deeper issues
We are a team of qualified BACP registered & accreditated sign language counsellors/psychotherapists.
We are passionate about Deaf and hard of hearing mental health. Our aim is to help the Deaf and hard of hearing communities obtain the counselling required in the preferred communication style of choice.
We believe in matching our counsellors with clients, both linguistically and culturally.
We are an online counselling service however we do offer In person, sessions in Birmingham, East London, South London, West London, Central London, Scotland, Greater Manchester, Wales & Surrey.
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.
When we created Deaf4Deaf, we felt there was not a national service that offered an privately paid & funded 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)
