Based in the heart of County Durham, One Place Together is a private counselling practice that aims to bring a friendly and warm service at accessible prices.
We sometimes go through times in our lives where we may feel unable to cope with the day to day stresses and strains of daily life. Our counselling service allows you to talk openly and without judgement to a fully trained counsellor. We have three counsellors based within the practice who all have different experience and fields of expertise, through a one to one free consultation we would discuss the reasons you feel you would like to see a counsellor and match you with someone suited to your needs.
Through our experience as Counsellors it has become apparent that early intervention could prevent future mental health issues developing further into adulthood. We feel we owe it to others to give back to them good mental health and enjoy all aspects of life. These are fundamental, preventable issues that we can work with from all ages and gender.

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.

Mental ill health or mental illness sounds like such a strong term which is often down to the stigma surrounding it. In actual fact it refers to any condition that prevents us from coping with the day-to-day activities we would usually manage without issue. This can include any issue in our lives that influences our thought process.
Within our service we work with common issues such as anxiety, stress, depression and mood disorders which could have been brought on by a range of different circumstances such as abuse, bereavement, addiction, relationship issues, work, school or home life.
We understand how difficult it is to make the decission to come for counselling, this is why we have made it as easy as possible. there are so many different questions you will have going through your head at this time. This is why our service offers a free, no obligation consultation. We feel this is an important part of the counselling process as it gives you the opportunity to come along, see where we are, meet our counsellors and have a chat about your needs. this also gives us the opportunity to see which one of our counsellors fits in with you and your needs.
With many counselling providers there are often long waiting lists for public services and steep prices for private counsellors. We are trying to bridge the gap in offering an appointment within two working days of your first contact with us, meaning no anxious waiting on a list and offering more affordable prices with sessions at £40 each.
