About us

COVID-19: Contact us to discuss our free-of-charge online service being offered right now

Counselling at Richmond AID is here to assist people in the local community. We are a team of committed therapists who use a holistic approach to meet people where they are at.

If you are over 18 and struggling to find your way through an issue or an ongoing problem, we are here to help.

There is power in the spoken word and our therapists are dedicated to their clients. They offer a confidential space each week to talk things through. Our clients are supported as they tell their stories, share their issues, and redefine their goals.


Richmond AID is a special place. It is based on the charity’s culture of mutual respect, integrity and honest communication. Our clients report that through counselling here they have found: a space to talk, a feeling of being heard, support, tools for coping with difficult situations, an ability to look at their lives with a new perspective and a renewed preparedness to make positive choices moving forward.

Our service usually operates on a Wednesday evening, Thursday and Friday mornings. However, due to the current lockdown, we are able to offer sessions most days.  We have the ability to refer you on to other additional support services if this is what you need.

Common situations Richmond AID Counselling can help with:

Relationship difficulties Work stresses
Grief and loss Caring for others
Struggling to cope Depression / anxiety
Talking through disability Isolation
Difficult life changes Feeling stuck

If you think we might be able to assist you in any way please get in touch.

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.

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.
