Let's Talk Torrington

Clarity is a mental health charity based in Barnstaple staffed by a dedicated and professional team of 24 qualified volunteer counsellors.  Thanks to a ground-breaking decision by Torrington Town Council, Clarity and the Town Council have entered into a partnership to deliver a “Let’s Talk” group for people in Torrington. 

Let’s Talk is a weekly group run by two experienced counsellors.  Its target audience are clients that live with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and stress which can result in loneliness and isolation. 

Evidence from Clarity’s Barnstaple Let’s Talk group shows this group work to be very effective, allowing clients to address their issues in a safe and confidential environment together with other people who are also struggling with their lives. Clients gain self-esteem, confidence and raised self-awareness which enables them to flourish in their own lives.  They will also form friendships and receive support from the other members of the group. 

If you think you, or anyone you know, might benefit from this new service then come and meet the “Let’s Talk” counsellors on Tuesday, 28th August between 12.30 and 4.30 p.m. in the Town Council Committee Room at Castle Hill.  Alternatively call Clarity on 01271 267474 or email
