Marches Counselling Service
We provide a high quality, confidential, service to adults in Herefordshire who feel that talking therapy may help address issues in their lives. A range of counselling approaches are available to suit individual needs: contemporary evidence-based models such as CBT and EMDR; as well as those which research shows can be equally effective, but are more exploratory and focus on relationships. An initial assessment appointment with a qualified therapist will establish whether we have the clinical resources to help you. If not we do our best to help you find appropriate support.
Training, qualifications & experience
We are a BACP accredited service and adhere to their ethical framework. All our therapists have followed accredited training courses and many have years of experience as fully accredited counsellors. We have therapists trained in individual and group work, as well as couple counselling. In-house supervision is provided so that no counsellor is unsupported in their work.
