Chiltern Counsellors Network
The Bagnall Centre
Chiltern Counsellors network was established in 2016 by two BACP registered and accredited counsellors, following the closure of the Chiltern Counselling charity. The Network includes eight counsellors with many years of experience working with Chiltern Counselling and in other settings.
Anyone over the age of 18 can apply for counselling through this Network of experienced counsellors.
Are you feeling depressed, anxious or finding it difficult to make or maintain relationships socially, at home or at work? You may find that events that happened many years ago are continuing to affect you now and are making life difficult. Alternatively, you may be experiencing a current situation which has upset your sense of who you are and is leaving you feeling alone, isolated and unable to share it with anyone. Our counsellors are here to listen and to help you find ways to understand and cope with whatever is troubling you.
Training, qualifications & experience
All Network counsellors have completed at least three years of training, or are in their final year, and are registered and insured in their own right.
Each counsellor's credentials (professional membership, insurance and qualifications) are checked when they start working with us, and on an annual basis. We recommend that clients make their own assessment that the counsellor referred to them by Chiltern Counsellors Network is suitably qualified, registered and insured. Please address any concerns about a counsellor's practice with the counsellor themselves. If this fails to resolve the concern, then please contact the counsellor's professional body, ie. BACP or UKCP.

To make therapy affordable for everyone, regardless of ability to pay, we operate a sliding scale of fees.
The fee for an Initial Consultation is usually £50, but may be reduced to £20 if you or your household is unwaged.
Fees for ongoing sessions will be negotiated with your counsellor but the typical fee is £45-50 per session for one to one counselling, with reduced fees available for the unwaged.
Please note that you will usually be expected to pay for any missed/cancelled sessions. This is to secure your regular appointment time for the duration of your counselling.
Chiltern Counsellors Network offers consultations at both The Bagnall Centre in Chesham (HP5) and across a wide referral network covering the Chilterns area, including Great Missenden, High Wycombe, Princes Risborough and Chorleywood.
The Bagnall Centre is 5 minutes walk from the Watermeadow Car Park, and 10 minutes walk from Chesham Station on the Metropolitan Line. We are close to bus routes and there is a large free car park 10 minutes walk away (Chesham Moor Car Park by the open air pool).
If you would like to talk to us to find out any other details or to make an appointment, please email us or leave a phone message on our confidential line.
