Other areas of counselling we deal with

All Charis counsellors are trained to offer Trauma Debrief. Over the years we have gained experience in delivering trauma debrief for individuals and for groups where people have experienced a trauma. This may be as a result of someone being a witness to a workplace fatality, a violent incident in a homeless project or finding day to day functioning difficult after being involved in a car accident.


Charis counselling offers a free professional service.
