About us

In the last few years there has been increasing media attention on the benefits of good mental health, and also on reducing the stigma that people encounter when discussing their problems openly. In response to this we have set up Purewell Community Counselling.

We are a group of counsellors (male and female), committed to offering a low-cost high-quality service to clients who might otherwise not be able to access counselling. Sessions are typically 50 minutes each, usually on the same day every week. We can offer short-term and long-term counselling with regular reviews to ensure that our service is meeting your needs. We offer face to face support and our services are confidential.

Our service offers help and support with Relationship Issues, Bereavement, Drug and Alcohol issues, Anxiety, Depression and Post-Diagnostic Support amongst many other issues. We can offer a range of therapies including CBT.

Training, qualifications & experience

Our counsellors are all members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and are qualified up to Level 5 of the CPCAB awarding body. We all attend regular supervision and are fully insured. Our service adheres to the BACP ethical framework.

Individual counselling – Sessions are 50 minutes long and are charged on a sliding scale from £40-£20 based on what you can afford. The reason we do this and not charge a set fee, is because we believe that counselling should be accessible to everyone and often the biggest barrier to seeking help is the cost.

Sessions for children are typically shorter at 30-40 minutes and charged at £30-£20 per session. For children 15 and under, please note that a responsible adult will need to remain on the premises for the duration of the session.

Level 4 students doing their 40 hours personal therapy – £25.00 per 50 minute session.

Young carers – £20.00 per 50 minute session.

Couples counselling is available and charged at £40 per session.
