Richmond AID Counselling Service
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.

Member organisations *
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
