About us

With clinic rooms in Letchworth, Local Counselling Centre, (LCC), provides counselling and psychotherapy for people from all walks of life in a safe, non-judgemental manner.

We offer low and full cost services from only £15 per session.

At LCC we appreciate that finding the right therapist can be daunting. There are many types of therapy and therapists often have different kinds of approaches or styles. Through our professional practice management service we will direct you to the right type of therapy and the right therapist for you, selected from our highly skilled and professional team. Therapists can only register with LCC if they are accredited with a nationally recognised counselling or psychotherapy professional body. Our specialist sex and relationship therapists have completed a minimum two year post graduate diploma in Psychosexual Psychotherapy in addition to their core nursing or counselling qualification. We believe that a weekend course in couple therapy is not enough to work in this field.

Our team covers the full range of counselling approaches, including CBT, Integrative, Psychosexual, Art, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy. We offer NICE recommended specialist treatments for anxiety, OCD, depression, bereavement, emotional eating, sex and relationship issues, child, adolescent and families.

We also offer group therapy for Over 70's, Bereavement and Mindfulness.

Please see our website for a fuller description of our services or contact our Practice Manager, Kathy Freeman on 01462 674671 hello@localcounsellingcentre.co.uk.

Our rooms in Letchworth are available to hire by professionals or charities on a long term or ad hoc basis for just £15 an hour. Please contact Kathy Freeman, Practice Manager, at hello@localcounsellingcentre.co.uk, for more information.
