The Enfield, Barnet and Haringey branch of the Samaritans is based in Bounds Green. We provide confidential advice and support for people who are going through, anticipating or recovering from crisis in their lives.
If you're feeling low and just need someone to talk to, you can contact us any time, day or night. We're waiting to listen and talk, without judgement, with empathy. Common reasons to call Samaritans are: relationship and family problems; loss, including loss of a job, a friend or a family member through bereavement; financial worries; job-related stress or overwork; college or study related stress, body image issues.
Samaritans volunteers listen in confidence to anyone in any type of emotional distress, without judging or telling people what to do. Samaritans doesn’t offer advice, but by encouraging people who contact us to talk about their feelings we are able to help them explore all the options they have. Samaritans believes that given the time and space to work problems or difficulties through in confidence, people can find an inner strength and perspective which lets them find their own way forward.
We offer our service by telephone, email, letter and face to face.
Our usual hours open to receive callers: Mon, Tues and Thurs 10.30-21.30, Wed 18.00-21.30, Fri 10.30-17.30, Sat and Sun 10.30-17.30
