The Counselling Centre Folkestone
Due to current government guidelines following the Covid-19 pandemic all our counselling sessions are currently being held online with counsellors until further notice. We are currently still open for new referrals, so please contact us by phone or email to make an online appointment.
The Counselling Centre Folkestone is a privately run agency for those seeking personal therapy for a whole range of presenting issues.
Counselling can be hugely beneficial for many people in a wide variety of situations including helping people to cope with depression and anxiety, bereavement, relationship difficulties, sexual and racial issues, early childhood abuse, mental health issues and addictions. Counselling offers people a safe, confidential place to talk about life issues and problems that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable.
It may be that you have been referred by your GP for counselling, perhaps it’s been suggested to you by a partner, friend or colleague that you seek counselling help or maybe you have decided yourself that enough is enough and you need to do something about the way you are feeling.
Very often, people can feel that they should be able to resolve their personal issues by themselves. They may feel uncomfortable and perhaps have a sense of apprehension that has prevented them from seeking assistance for their problems before. They may feel that seeking help is a sign of weakness, the truth is, it is a sign of strength.
If you decide that counselling may be of help please contact us. We will start by booking in a meeting to assess your current needs and we can discuss whether our approach will be the most beneficial way for you to proceed. If so, we will then arrange an appointment with one of our counsellors at a mutually agreeable time.

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.
