All our counsellors are professionally trained, fully qualified and experienced in working with clients affected in any way by cancer or other life-threatening illness. We offer support to adults, young people and children. Counselling takes place in Frome, Warminster, Trowbridge, two locations in Bath (one of which is the RUH), Weston-super-Mare and Street and in several schools throughout the area.

Member organisations *
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.
Areas of counselling we deal with
Other areas of counselling we deal with
A cancer diagnosis can have an impact on many areas of people's lives and stir up feelings related to a variety of issues and past experiences.
We rely entirely on voluntary donations from our clients, local businesses, individuals, community groups and grant making trusts. We dont receive any Central Government funding.
Although we don’t charge, we do encourage individuals who use our service to make a donation if they are able to.
