About us

We are a group of professionally trained Counsellors, from various churches based around the New Forest, providing services to clients from Totton in the east to Christchurch in the west.

Our service has been working in the New Forest for over 15 years and offers safe, secure and highly confidential counselling from supportive and empathetic counsellors, at a range of venues. A number of churches across the Forest make counselling premises available to us, which helps reduce our costs. The counselling venue will depend on various factors, such as convenience of travel, availability of counsellor, and issues of confidentiality. The service is open to those of all faiths or none.

Training, qualifications & experience

All of our counsellors are either accredited with the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC), or the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapisis (BACP), or working towards accreditation. They each receive regular individual supervision, as well as peer group supervision and are covered by Professional Indemnity insurance. As an organisation we are affiliated to the Assocaiation of Christian Counsellors.

The Charities Trustees are chosen from various denominations in the New Forest and the service is also supported by medical and legal professionals.

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.

ACC

Association for Christian Counsellors

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

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.
