About us

The Dove Service works across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire offering counselling and support to those struggling with the impact of bereavement, significant loss, or life changing/limiting illness.

Our counselling services provide a safe, confidential environment to explore all aspects of loss. We can work with you, whether you yourself are experiencing a loss or if you are struggling to cope with a loss involving your family, carers, a friend or something else that has impacted you personally.

Through timely and appropriate intervention and support many people benefit from our counselling services.

‘The Dove Service provides BACP accredited counselling services and works within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy’.
