NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO?

We are a not for profit social enterprise and counselling practice, offering affordable talking therapies for adults and couples aged 17 and upwards. We have been providing high quality counselling for over twenty five years with sessions available at a number of venues in the Waveney and Great Yarmouth areas. People feedback that their lives have been transformed by the counselling they have received......

"the support was crucial and gave me the space to reflect on challenging situations".....

"has opened my eyes to myself, I understand why I am the person I am and why I react the way I do”........

We provide a number of options for counselling, and aim to carefully match your counsellor to your particular needs based upon their individual experiences, areas of expertise and wider professional backgrounds. Our options include:

Open-Ended Counselling
(for as long as you feel you need)

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.

BACP

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.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
