Space2BHeard expands the options for those seeking psychotherapy and counselling

Space2BHeard is a new service from the Ellesmere Centre for Psychotherapy and Training.

A new mental health service is set to launch in Hull on 19th November 2019.

Space2BHeard is a Community Interest Company that aims to expand the current provision of psychotherapeutic services in Hull and the surrounding areas. This much needed, additional local service is borne from the nationally recognised Ellesmere Centre for Training & Psychotherapy based in Holderness Road, Hull.

Ellesmere Centre for Psychotherapy and Training, Holderness Road.

Space2BHeard is currently based at the Ellesmere Centre for Psychotherapy and Training but plans to move into new, more centrally located premises later this year.

The Ellesmere’s Director of Training, Kathie Hostick said: “The demand for counselling and therapy has increased over recent years. Although the Ellesmere Centre will continue to provide training in Counselling and Psychotherapy, all client-facing services will run separately on a not-for-profit basis. We hope that people will find the new service easy to access and to navigate and that the range of options available will expand to meet the growing need.”

Services currently available include the Depression and Anxiety Service Let’s TalkValued Minds affordable counselling and psychotherapy service, and the  Re-Mind service for people suffering with long term pain and/or fatigue conditions such as Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia.

Existing services can still be accessed via the Ellesmere Centre, however, a more streamlined referral process is available from 19th November on the Space2BHeard website, by telephoning 01482 705023, or emailing

Space2BHeard’s Director of Business Development, Hayley Jackson said: “We are passionate about developing innovative, quality and accessible services to the people in our local communities. Our aim is to expand upon the excellent services already provided by our partners in the sector, and to develop new services where there is a need in the community.”

Space2BHeard CIC is holding a public launch day on Tuesday 19th November between 11am and 8pm at the Ellesmere Centre, 861 Holderness Road, Hull and welcomes interest and enquiries from potential partners and members of the public who would like to find out more.
