About us

Who are we

We are a local counselling charity established in 1989 offering a low cost counselling service to members of the community who are both self-referring individuals and referred through GP practices. We do not however currently offer counselling to couples.

With fees for private counselling being in the region of £35.00 - £70.00 per hour, we are very proud of the fact that we are still able to offer a high quality low cost counselling service with our sessions costing between £6.00 - £15.00 to be agreed at initial assessment interview. We have in excess of 20 counsellors and consequently our waiting list is short.  As a result of this persons seeking our service can usually be allocated a counsellor within a very short time after initial interview

Our aim

To provide low cost short-term or open-ended counselling for anyone who needs help with issues such as: feelings of loneliness or isolation, stress, depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss, divorce, relationship difficulties, childhood trauma, confusion, forgetfulness, low self-esteem, sexuality, whatever the concern.

Our counselling

Our counsellors are either fully qualified professional counsellors counsellors who are in their last year of training on placement about preparing to enter the profession. They receive regular supervision in accordance with BACP guidelines and are accountable to the organisation for the quality of their work with their clients.

To arrange an appointment, please phone 020 8524 9711 or 07547 893700 (24 hour voicemail checked daily on both numbers). You can also text on the mobile number and we will call you back.

Confidentiality

Counselling is a confidential service.  Information will not be passed to anyone without your consent. The rare exception to this is where we feel you may be a danger to yourself or to others.  Your counsellor will also discuss this with you first.

Equality

We actively oppose oppression and discrimination against people because of their sex, race,  nationality, ethnicity, disabilities, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs, class, status, HIV status or those who have been in contact with mental health services.
