Protem Counselling is a Didsbury-based counselling service founded on Christian principles. Over our 27-year history, Protem Counselling has positively impacted thousands of peoples’ lives.
Protem offers impartial and non-judgemental counselling to all – Christians, people of other faiths and people of no faith. We believe in the uniqueness of each individual, and respect each person’s right to form their own values.
Affiliated to the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC) and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), Protem operates to the highest standards of professional and ethical practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
Currently, we have a team of 16 counsellors all of whom are professionally trained and registered with a recognised professional body for counselling and psychotherapy (e.g. ACC, BACP). At times, we take on fully-supervised trainees who are in the final stages of their training on a recognised and approved counsellor training course.
Our counsellors hold a range of qualifications in counselling, supervision and pastoral care covering a number of different approaches to counselling. We work to the highest ethical and professional standards adhering to the ethical frameworks of ACC and BACP.

The counselling fee is paid to the counsellor in cash or by cheque at the end of each session.
