SP counselling service was founded to provide affordable and excellent quality counselling to adults experiencing mild to moderate struggles with their mental health and wellbeing.
We help people to overcome anxiety, build self- esteem and confidence, fight depression and low mood, achieve healthy relationships and manage intense or overwhelming emotions such as sadness.
Many NHS counselling services are overwhelmed and/or under-resourced and can have long waiting lists to access therapy. Additionally, after navigating the long waiting list, people often find that their sessions are limited to 6 or 8 appointments.
With SP counselling service, you can access therapy quickly and affordably, without any limit on the number of sessions you can have and as we have an open access policy, you do not need a referral from your GP to access the service and you can self- refer.
SP counselling service upholds strong ethical principals and excellent professional standards to ensure that every client who uses our service is appropriately and safely supported.
Our counselling rooms are comfortable, welcoming and private spaces and we aim to provide you with the best possible environment for your sessions.
We offer face to face sessions and remote sessions delivered via video.
All of our counselling rooms are located on the ground floor, making them more accessible to clients.
Our sessions are provided by Counsellors and Psychotherapists with a range of qualifications and backgrounds meaning we can make sure that we find a counsellor who is a good fit for you.

Member organisations *
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
