About us

In Charley's Memory is a mental health charity that provides face to face, low cost counselling for anyone aged eleven and over who is experiencing mental health difficulties. This is your time to talk about any aspect of your life in a confidential, safe and non-judgmental environment. Everyone’s counselling journey is tailored to their individual’s needs, and for that reason, you will be seen for the length of time you need.

After contacting us you will be invited for an initial session with an experienced counsellor which is an opportunity for us to see if we can help you and also for you to see if this is the right place for you. The initial session costs £10 but is free for under 25 year olds. If we feel we can help you, you will then be placed on our waiting list and a counsellor will be in contact with you to arrange a suitable time for regular appointments. Our day time sessions cost £10 and last for 50 minutes but our view is that price should not be a barrier for you to access counselling so please feel free to contact us whatever your circumstances. 

We offer sessions between 8.45am and 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8.45am to 1pm on Fridays. We also offer evening sessions on a Tuesday night but these are for over 18's only and are charged at £25 per session.

We are a registered Charity ( 1160805)  based in Highbridge, Somerset.

Training, qualifications & experience

Our counsellors are qualified or qualifying at the end of their academic studies. All our counsellors are required to be members of a professional counselling governing body. To ensure continual high standards of counselling we support ongoing training and further education for all our counsellors.

Member organisations *

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Wheelchair user access
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.
