We offer a counselling service at Connect for all people living with stroke and aphasia. Harry Clarke is a trained counsellor who had a stroke in 1988 and has aphasia. The service is free but as a charity we welcome donations to help the service continue.

Counselling via Skype / Oovoo

Skype and Oovoo are computer programmes that allow users to make voice and video calls over the Internet. They are free, and all you need is a computer and an internet connection.

Connect understands that some people may find it difficult to reach our London centre. In these circumstances, we can offer Skype or Oovoo counselling if it would be appropriate.

If you are unable to travel to Connect, and are interested in Skype or Oovoo counselling, there is more information in the form on the right.
