There are times when we feel unable to cope. Sometimes the reason is clear and we know where to find help but at other times it is more confused. It is at these times that counselling may be beneficial. Sharing your feelings in confidence with a trained counsellor can be a great relief and a source of strength. We offer affordable professional & confidential counselling for personal, relationship & family problems.
We have been providing counselling for more than 30 years. You can refer yourself or your GP or another health professional can do this for you.
We are a registered Charity, and offer a BACP accredited service. We offer Bereavement support for adults and children and young people. We offer solutions focused work on behalf of employers for their employees.
We can offer sessions in person, online and via he telephone.
Long Term Counselling
Long term counselling, not readily available on the NHS, offers an opportunity to explore your difficulties without limiting the number of sessions. This enables you to explore many areas of your life in depth at your own pace.
Bereavement Support for children and adults is a dedicated service looking at the specific challenges and difficulties associated with all types of bereavement.
Training, qualifications & experience
We are also a BACP accredited training organisation - our counsellors are graduates from our training or in training with us. This underpins the quality of the work we deliver.
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 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.
Areas of counselling we deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Counselling need not be focused on a particular issue or difficulty but can be more concerned with self development and potential.
We offer Psychodynamic counselling, which is particularly effective in opening up thoughts and feelings connected with personal growth, helping individuals to challenge self-destructive patterns of behaviour and move towards a more reflective way of being.
From £15.00 to £50.00
