About me...Sarah McCaffrey

I am a BACP registered counsellor and have training in Sexual Violence Against Women. I am an Associate Tutor for SFA: Suicide First Aid through Understanding Suicide Interventions

I am a volunteer counsellor at Rape Crisis and work in private practice. I also work in film and media and am aware of the inherent stresses within this predominantly freelance industry.

I set up Solas Mind to  provide effective in-house or on-set counselling services and Suicide First Aid Education.

I am passionate about supporting the positive mental health of all individuals and destigmatizing suicide by 

delivering Suicide First Aid Training.

About Solas Mind...


At Solas Mind we offer counselling and training to corporate clients and work in the film and media industry offering in-house counselling and Suicide Prevention Education. We deliver the UK’s National Qualification in Suicide Prevention - 'Suicide First Aid'

The three core beliefs that underpin this training are:

  • Most people thinking of suicide do not want their lives to end, they want the pain to stop. Therefore....

  • Most people thinking about suicide let others know, consciously or unconsciously. Therefore, if we know the signs and how to respond....

  • Suicide has to be one of the most preventable deaths.

All the counsellors we work with are BACP registered and have an understanding of the film and media industry. We can provide counsellors on-set or in-house, offering drop in sessions and booked appointments to assist employees and help to support them in the workplace. We can also offer in house training in Suicide Prevention both as a full day programme or an alternative shorter course. 

We are dedicated to Positive Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Education

Our vision is to live in a world where taking care of your mental health and well-being is a priority, where finding a professional to assist you is easy and accessible, when you need it most.

Our mission is to be a stable component in our client' s lives and empower individuals and businesses with wellbeing and mental health education. We are passionate about destigmatising suicide and supporting the mental health of all individuals.
