Call Us


Sometimes even hearing a supportive voice can give you that little bit of strength to keep going.

 

What happens when you contact us varies slightly depending on whether you call, email, text, write or talk to us face-to-face. But our approach to supporting you stays the same.

 

1. A volunteer will always answer

  • If you phone us, we will always answer ‘Cyprus Samaritans, can I help you?’

 

2. You talk, we listen

  • We listen to you and help you talk through your concerns, worries and troubles

  • We won’t tell you what you should do

  • We won’t make decisions for you, and we’ll support the decisions you make

  • If you want specific advice, we may be able to give you contact details for organisations that specialise in helping with a problem you may have

  • We won’t talk about ourselves, even if you ask us to. We’re there to give you time, space and support – you don’t need to ask how we are, or give us time in return

  • We don’t impose any personal attitudes or beliefs on you. We’re not religious

 

3. Ending the conversation

  • You can end the conversation when you’re ready to

  • There’s no limit on how many times you can get in touch
