About us

Cambridge Counselling Service is the largest private counselling service in Cambridge. It consists of a network of private-practitioner counsellors from the Cambridge area, who are all interested in helping widen access to counselling and in helping people get their lives on track. 

Cambridge Counselling Service works with people across Cambridgeshire.

Our mission is to widen access to high-quality counselling, as we believe the availability of counselling is key for a flourishing local community.

We have private, comfortable and light-filled consulting rooms, with views of trees and sky, near Stourbridge Common in Cambridge. All our offices have been designed and built, especially for counselling. We have a large comfortable waiting area, toilets, plenty of free parking space and easy access by car, bus, foot or bike. The office is about 12 minutes walk from Midsummer Common, 20 minutes walk from the Grafton Centre, 5 minutes cycle from North Cambridge train station – and a couple of minute's walk from the River Cam. Unfortunately, our offices are not wheelchair accessible.

We offer individual and couples counselling and supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists.

Training, qualifications & experience

Cambridge Counselling Service counsellors are all on the government register of counsellors and psychotherapists. All are members of either UKCP, BACP or the BPS.

All have advanced qualifications in counselling or psychotherapy and many are qualified at masters level or beyond.

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.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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