About us

Who are we

We are a local counselling charity established in 1989 offering a low cost counselling service to members of the community who are both self-referring individuals and referred through GP practices. We do not however currently offer counselling to couples.

With fees for private counselling being in the region of £35.00 - £70.00 per hour, we are very proud of the fact that we are still able to offer a high quality low cost counselling service with our sessions costing between £6.00 - £15.00 to be agreed at initial assessment interview. We have in excess of 20 counsellors and consequently our waiting list is short.  As a result of this persons seeking our service can usually be allocated a counsellor within a very short time after initial interview

Our aim

To provide low cost short-term or open-ended counselling for anyone who needs help with issues such as: feelings of loneliness or isolation, stress, depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss, divorce, relationship difficulties, childhood trauma, confusion, forgetfulness, low self-esteem, sexuality, whatever the concern.

Our counselling

Our counsellors are either fully qualified professional counsellors counsellors who are in their last year of training on placement about preparing to enter the profession. They receive regular supervision in accordance with BACP guidelines and are accountable to the organisation for the quality of their work with their clients.

To arrange an appointment, please phone 020 8524 9711 or 07547 893700 (24 hour voicemail checked daily on both numbers). You can also text on the mobile number and we will call you back.

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.
