Telephone Therapy Support Service Set Up During Pandemic

Everton Football Club and Everton in the Community are championing a recently-launched therapy service for people suffering with mental health problems in Merseyside in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Led by director of non-profit organisation Psychological Therapies Unit, Steve Flatt, and a team of Liverpool psychologists and therapists, the new telephone-based initiative called ‘Working Conversations for the Coronavirus Crisis’ has been set up to help those in desperate need of emotional help during this time.

The free scheme is designed to directly assist individuals who are struggling with a variety of conditions including anxiety, depression, anger and loneliness and offers 15-minute phone conversations with trained volunteer therapists although there is flexibility for longer sessions if required.

Everton Football Club and its official charity has been partnered with Steve Flatt for a number of years and his services as a trained therapist are available to staff across the Everton Family who may have experienced difficulties of some kind in their professional and/or personal lives.

You can access the ‘Working Conversations for the Coronavirus Crisis’ service by calling 0800 090 2470texting 07894 612249 or emailing and include your phone number. You will be asked a few basic questions and your number and details will then be shared with a volunteer therapist who will call you at an agreed time for your first conversation.
