Worcester Therapy Group
Counselling and Psychotherapy in Worcester
NOTE: We welcome new referrals, but only online/video sessions are available during the current lockdown. Please be assured we are delivering the same high quality service, albeit through a different medium.
The Worcester Therapy Group is unique in the locality as the only service offering a comprehensive range of psychological therapies supplied by a team of 20+ professionals all working under the same roof.
Established originally in 1991, the service has grown considerably and has continued to build its reputation from offering a wide range of therapies to individuals, couples and families in the Worcestershire region.
The cornerstone of this unique service is our goal to help clients find the best therapist available and to take the guesswork out of the process. To achieve this one of our senior therapists conducts an initial consultation to help establish the precise nature of the problem and match you with the most suitable Counsellor or Psychotherapist. For many, this avoids the uncertainty of approaching individual counsellors and therapists purely on the basis of their web-presence. The advantage is that you can have an in-depth conversation with an experienced professional about what your particular needs are before proceeding any further, which takes a great deal of anxiety out of the process.
Our service operates from its own discrete premises on the second floor of Barbourne Health Centre in Worcester WR3, with 4 dedicated consulting rooms furnished to a high standard (please see photos)
