About us

About us
We are a team of approximately 40 therapists delivering a professional counselling service providing support to individuals aged 14+ and couples.  We help people from all walks of life and offer a confidential and supportive counselling service giving you the opportunity to change. Counselling can help you to deal with a wide range of issues including: anxiety, low self-confidence, stress, loss, depression,  domestic violence, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, bullying and relationship problems.

Why have counselling?
Counselling can help you address problems and difficulties by talking to someone who is professionally trained to listen and offer support and can enable you to live a more meaningful life, understand yourself better so you can help yourself and achieve your personal goals.

Feedback - quotes from clients:
‘I am now able to carry out my day to day life again with confidence, which I was not able to do before.’

‘The counselling exceeded my expectations. I now have a job and am much happier.’

‘I have a much better understanding of why my problems affected me in the way they did. I have been off 5 anti-depressants since March, which is a result in itself.’

'Counselling really helped me through a difficult time in my life'

"We found couples counselling really helpful and wished we'd done it years ago"

What happens when you contact us?

Firstly we take some basic details from you and arrange an initial appointment to talk with you to assess your counselling needs. This is an important meeting as it gives the opportunity to consider what kind of help is required.

If you decide to go ahead, we will place you onto our allocation file. Once a suitable counsellor is available to see you we will contact you to make an appointment to start your weekly counselling sessions.

  • Comfortable counselling room


Chichester Counselling is a registered charity and a non-profit making organisation that receives no financial support from the Government or National Health Service. It costs us approximately £45 to provide a counselling session.

We rely on clients making a contribution of what they are willing and able to afford.

For the initial appointment there is a suggested contribution of £30; at this first appointment you will meet with an assessor to talk about a possible contribution for weekly counselling.

Our charitable aim is to provide affordable counselling and no-one is excluded from counselling because they cannot afford to contribute the full cost of counselling.

If we cannot help you we will do our best to refer to an agency or individual who can.
