El Faro


El Faro is a counselling service for people whose lives are affected by disability and/or bereavement. The service is run by fully trained, experienced volunteers whose mission is to empower people to regain positive control over their lives.


I am lighthouse 

rather than


I do not rescue

but instead


others to 



own way 

to shore



In the future El Faro will offer training in Person Centered Practices for professionals and volunteers with the aim of fostering a global learning counselling community for exchanging knowledge, experience and good practice.
