Counsellors are offering free confidential phone support for frontline workers who are part of the West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.
Laura Davis, from Bury St Edmunds, set up the resource after seeing emotional videos of nurses torn between serving the NHS during the coronavirus outbreak and protecting their families health.
Laura does not work within mental and physical healthcare, rather she owns a furniture company. However, she empathised particularly with mothers working within the NHS; some have chosen to live apart from their children to reduce the likelihood of passing the virus to them.
Laura, who has benefitted from counselling herself, posted a request on Facebook for counsellors who could offer their services free of charge. She said she had a great response, one which has enabled her to offer counselling to any frontline workers at her local NHS Foundation Hospital Trust, "which is amazing".
The counselling service can be contacted at email@example.com.
