We have been working in Littlehampton since 1983 providing compassionate, non-judgemental and confidential counselling for residents in our local area.

Following assessment we offer an initial contract of 18 sessions. If you and your counsellor agree, then this can be extended for up to one year.

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Other areas of counselling we deal with

COVID related depression and anxiety


Additional information

We are an independent non-profit making charity. Almost all our income comes from the fees our clients pay for the services we offer.


The fee for an assessment is £25. This covers the cost of paying our assessor. If you are in very difficult financial circumstances, we can consider reducing the cost of the assessment.

Costs per session
How much you pay will depend on your financial circumstances. If you are in full-time work we ask that you pay £20-£40 for each session, depending on your income. This allows us to fully cover our costs.

Further information

Our counselling sessions take place during the week in daytime and evenings. We also have some appointments on a Saturday.
