San Fulgencio

The Samaritans come to San Fulgencio

By Keith Nicol

SAN FULGENCIO’S Councillor for the Urbanisations, Jeff Wiszniewski and his team are delighted to announce that the Samaritans in Spain will be working closely with the Office for the Urbanisations in San Fulgencio for the benefit of all English speakers in the municipality.

Samaritan Volunteers listen in confidence to anyone in any type of emotional distress, without judging or telling people what to do. Samaritans do not offer advice, but by encouraging our callers to talk about their feelings, we are able to help them explore all the options available to them.
Samaritans in Spain is operated by Costa Blanca Samaritans which is itself registered with the Generalitat Valenciana as a 100% not-for-profit organisation under CV-01-042952-A and with NIF G54341466.

Common reasons to need to speak to the Samaritans may be: Relationship and family problems: Loss, including loss of a job, a friend, a pet or through bereavement: Financial worries: Job-related stress or overwork: College or study-related stress or Body image issues. There is now also a 24 hour help line the number of which is 902 88 35 35.

Talking openly about how you really feel can often be like opening a door. Talking can put you back in control and often reveals the choices you have. Many people feel pressured into hiding their feelings out of embarrassment, or because they don’t wish to become a burden to their family or friends. But trying to hide your feelings under a calm exterior merely saves the problem for later, resulting in stress building up until it becomes intolerable.
