Helping people rewrite mental health

Who we are2020-05-13T13:19:14+01:00

Rewrite Your Story is a charitable organisation founded in 2017, supporting the mental health of children & young people, adults, families, professionals, carers and everyone else inbetween!

Our holistic systemic approach across all sectors has a special focus on raising awareness and early intervention.

Our story began with a clinical study funded by the NHS clinical commissioning groups within North and East Kent. We researched the effectiveness of early intervention during our work promoting and protecting the emotional wellbeing of children and young people.

The basis of our work, line with the NHS Five Year Forward View (2014), emphasised the need for early intervention and services to be integrated and provided close to patients and their families, usually within a 5-mile radius. By providing targeted early intervention and offering therapy that is local, the best possible recovery outcomes can be achieved. Our support has extended beyond the reach of traditional services, recognising that early intervention is key and our results support this.

As an organisation we believe that people have the right to choose which therapist they see and when, making therapy accessible to all who need it. We also like to use the latest technology and offer support online, by phone and text.

Over time, our charitable objectives have grown, and we are committed to providing accessible support, therapy and training to all members of our community. We provide accessible, affordable mental health services including; individual, family and couple therapy, clinician run support groups, awareness raising presentations, mental health and suicide prevention training, and much more.

We are a team of multi-accredited professionals based in Kent and operating county wide. Between us we are trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Eating Disorders, Family Therapy, Specialist Counselling, Addiction and Nutrition. Find out more about our individual Team Members.

We believe that, with the right personalised support, anyone with a mental health need can live the life they want to live. It is our vision that everyone gets the personalised services and support they need.

To make this vision a reality, our mission is to help people achieve good physical and mental wellbeing and live life to the full.

We do this by providing mental health support services, ranging from ‘talking therapies’ for men, women, adults, families, children and young people to coaching Workplace wellbeing and Psychoeducational support and training, and all based on the principle of supporting every person, as an individual, towards their own goals and aspirations.

At RWYS we aspire to deliver the highest quality of care and support to individuals, couples children, young people and families. We do this by working alongside you to help you understand who you are, deciphering why you have made the decisions you have in life, learning how to make choices that suit you better and moving forward in life in ways that feel good.

Our aim is to make a real and lasting difference to the people we support by achieving positive outcomes and enabling as normal and fulfilling a life as possible.
