We set up Spokz People in 2009, after we discovered that many people with disabilities would prefer to speak to a therapist with disability knowledge and experience. 

All our therapists have personal experience with disability in some way.  They are all qualified to HE level 5 and are members of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), meaning that we all follow their ethical framework. Our therapists are also fully insured and supervised and have undergone full DBS checks.

We are also a Social Enterprise, a Community Interest Company, and a founding member of Kandu, a network of ethical disability organisations, as well as the non-profit arm of Spokz, a provider of wheelchairs, sports accessories and lifestyle equipment.

Please be encouraged that we are aware that for many of us little will change over the coming months and out new community launching this Autumn is aimed at all of us who feel isolated, left out, forgotten. There will be a space to share, learn and support each other...we are in this together 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
