About us

Hello, We are a not for profit community counselling agency based in Basildon Essex.

We have counsellors available to work with you on a one to one basis and are registered members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

We offer a relaxed atmosphere where you will be able to examine your thoughts and feelings without being judged and where we will help you to find your own way at your own pace.

We believe everybody is unique and individual, as such a one size fits all approach does not work. I work from an integrative approach, tailored to work with your needs.
This enables you to gain the most out of counselling and achieve what you want to achieve.

We offer an initial session for £10, lasting 35 minutes. this includes discussing your needs, expectations of counselling and how best we could work together.

The Listening Post can offer both short and long term counselling, with regular reviews to ensure you are gaining what you want from counselling.

Each session is 50 minutes (therapeutic session) and ideally weekly but can work around other commitments.

As we are a not for profit organisation, all clients session costs are income based. sessions go from £10 to £40
