We offer a professional, confidential counselling service to individuals and couples that address issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, relationship difficulties, and low self-esteem. We are committed to making counselling affordable for everyone in our community. Fees/concessions are agreed with you at your initial meeting, based in your individual circumstances.
Training, qualifications & experience
All our counsellors are volunteers who are either recently qualified or in training. They receive regular clinical supervision from fully qualified therapists and work within British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's Codes of ethics.
Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
