About us

New Dawn Counselling Service is a Registered Charity (1148368) and an Organisational Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Our team of experienced counsellors aim to provide a professional, compassionate and affordable service within the local community and can offer skilled help and understanding, within a safe and confidential environment.

  • About Counselling

There are many causes of emotional pain and often family and friends may be unaware of what you are experiencing. There are times when you may benefit from skilled help and understanding within a safe and confidential environment, which we can provide here at New Dawn.

  • Our Services

We provide counselling to individuals and couples at both our Bridgwater and Weston-super-Mare branches. We can offer you appointments at flexible times during the morning, afternoon and evening Monday-Friday. Saturday appointments may also be available if you cannot attend during the week. If a Saturday appointment would be best for you please discuss it with us at your initial assessment.

  • Who will I talk to?

In the first instance you will talk to a member of our assessment team. Following your initial assessment we will allocate you to the counsellor who can support you best.

  • Is it confidential?

Confidentiality is maintained at every level, except for very exceptional circumstances.

  • How much does it cost?

Our mission is to provide counselling that is affordable to everyone. We operate on a sliding scale depending on your income. Our prices range from £15-£35 for individuals and £30-£60 for couples.

We are here for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

The majority of our counsellors are fully qualified and experienced counsellors. We also have a number of trainee counsellors who are in their final year of training and are required to gain counselling experience before being qualified. All of our counsellors are required to meet our high standards before they work with our clients.

All of our counsellors attended training courses and workshops through the year to ensure that their counselling skills are kept up to date.

Member organisations *

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.

Fees

Unfortunately, we receive very little funding and so are reliant on client donations to keep the charity going.

Donations operate on a sliding scale according to your personal circumstances. Our fees for individuals range from £15-£35 plus a £10 fee for the initial assessment. Our fees for couples range from £30-60 with a £20 fee for the initial assessment.

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.
