Lateef Project: Free counselling available for Tower Hamlets residents

Posted on: 9 May 2022

The Lateef Project is a free counselling service provider which is partnered with and commissioned by the NHS East London Foundation Trust. The service now offers free counselling for people who have been suffering common mental health problems within the boroughs of Newham, Tower Hamlets and Hackney. 

This service operates a self-referral online system, but referrals can also be completed with one of the project’s team members over the phone.

The counsellors are fully qualified and competent in working with Common mental health problems such as:

  • Depression  
  • Anxiety disorders  
  • Trauma and PTSD  
  • Domestic abuse  
  • Bereavement  
  • Childhood sexual abuse  
  • Addiction  
  • Coping skills  
  • Self-esteem  
  • Relationship issues  
  • Stress  

The assessment will be carried out by senior counsellors upon receiving a referral form. Although the service offers primarily faith-based counselling, the service is open to anyone of faith or no faith, and to any gender. 

If you would like to self-refer to the service or know someone that will benefit from counselling, please download and share the form and leaflet below.
