Caroline Hall - Hall Counselling Service
Free and low cost counselling for --> NHS, COVID related, low income and veterans
HCS is built on foundations of humanistic therapy. We offer counsellors from different counties and varied modalities within the humanistic approaches. Our ethos is to provide high quality service to our clients and operate on a social enterprise system, which applies a strategy to maximise improvements in the well-being of disadvantaged client groups.
HCS aims to provide a non-judgemental, confidential and supportive environment to promote an atmosphere of trust, enabling clients to bring to the session what is important for them.
In addition to our core training, HCS communicate skilfully in a range of ways across and within a multitude of contexts. We, therefore, draw on all other experiences of approaches we have learned along the way. Regular attendance at workshops and additional training has enhanced our self-awareness as well as our perception in noticing what might be useful to explore in the client's phenomenology. We place important emphasis on the skills necessary for using counselling most effectively, regardless of the age, sex or orientation of the client. Clients are encouraged by us to develop reflective skills, sometimes through the use of creativity, depending on the needs of the individual.
HCS take great pride in the progress and success of our clients. We look forward to helping you.
Training, qualifications & experience
HCS specialises in developmental, relationship and sexual trauma.
Do you ever feel... sad? angry? confused? anxious? in denial? depressed? numb? guilty? hopeless? irritable?
These are all emotional and psychological responses a person who has experienced trauma may present.
I have a First Class Honours Degree in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy. In addition I have undertaken my NCS Course Accredited Advanced Diploma in Counselling Supervision training, both individual and group work.
Our team's experience as counsellors has been gained in a wide range of contexts which include; children, young people and adults, specialised agency settings (sexual trauma), educational, social services, public services and private practice. We are experienced in both time-limited and open-ended contracts.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
