Mental health Support
We are the go-to mental health company in the Film and TV industry.
Solas Mind provide in-house, online or on-set counselling services, training, suicide prevention education and mental health first aid courses.
Offering professional, reliable, confidential support and guidance to production companies, studios, individuals.
We provide bespoke mental health packages of training, counselling, drop-in sessions, suicide and mental health first aid.
A personal service so that people feel supported and cared for. We want clients to have continuity of care; for individuals to be able to build a relationship with one counsellor, face to face
We work in partnership with you to deliver mental health services that are right for you. We provide an external source of support - an independent, personal service, that is not linked to the production company or studio. Thus, production staff are less reticent to seek help if needed.
The challenges of filming schedules, post Covid-19 anxiety and fear, post-traumatic stress, demanding work schedules, adapting to new filming practices, social distancing will have a large impact on mental health:
We can offer in-house or online counselling & training.
We have a straightforward system: a direct private booking link to our counsellor calendars
We are responsive and flexible: appointments can be arranged around the working day e.g. early morning from 6 am, and after work until 10pm.
We are affordable: a professional private practice that does not cost the earth.
We operate best practice: reporting to meet your needs and our professional requirements for confidentiality and record keeping.
What makes us different is that all our counsellors and trainers have:
Professional registration with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
Hold enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificates
Hold professional indemnity insurance
Have regular continuous professional development
Have regular supervision of their work in line with the BACP Ethical Framework to ensure standards remain high

Client safety and maintaining professional standards is our priority
Packages of 25/50/100 hours of online sessions can be purchased and appointments can be booked when needed confidentially via a personalised link to our calendar. We also offer a 'pay for what you use' service.
We will notify you bi-weekly of the uptake and extra sessions can be purchased if required.
In-house/on set counselling
A day, time and location will be agreed and a private booking link will be generated for your company/production.
Individuals will be able to book confidentially via this link.
We will endeavour to offer the same counsellor so that clients can build a supportive relationship.
Our bespoke in-house courses are custom made to meet the needs of your organisation and are delivered at venues and dates that suit you. Many of our packages can be offered as either a half day or a full day in person or online.
