Social Prescribing is a non-medical approach to improve Health and Wellbeing. Enabling an individual to have more control over their own health, finding ways to improve their circumstances, in a way that suits them.
My name is Karen Price and I have been appointed as the Social Prescribing Link Worker for Young People in the North Cotswolds.
The service is for young people aged 8 to 24 years, registered with a GP surgery in the North Cotswolds. The service is free and is designed to help anyone who is experiencing issues that are affecting their health and wellbeing. This might involve putting you in touch with groups in the community, local or national services, or linking with individuals with similar experiences. However, it may be that you need time to talk over the issues, then working together, we can formulate a plan to move forward.
If you have an aspect of life that you are unhappy with, and you want to make positive changes, you can make a referral at the number or email address below or speak to your GP surgery.
What will we do?
Through extended conversations, using health coaching tools and motivational interviewing, we can explore what is important to you and what you are passionate about. You may feel that you need support socially, emotionally or practically.
The focus is on you.
Together we can co-produce a plan of action and talk about goal setting and what you would like to achieve. This could be things like seeking support for mental health via counselling, supporting with accessing a group or club, supporting with developing a new hobby, or exploring educational/employment options.
I am not a counsellor or therapist, but I can provide guidance with low level mental health issues like anxiety and low mood.
I may be able to support in other ways too. So, if you feel that Social Prescribing might help you or someone you know, you can complete the referral form below (with their consent). Once we have received the referral, we will aim to make contact within 5 working days and arrange a suitable time for the initial chat. We can meet face to face, deciding on a venue to suit. However, if you prefer, we can use Zoom, Teams, WhatsApp, text, phone call or a combination of them all.
NHS immunisations are offered by the practice, in addition to important travel advice.
