About us

Established in 1983 as Offington Counselling Service, we are an independent local charity, serving the community of Worthing and surrounding areas.

We have helped thousands of people make changes in their lives and relationships to improve their emotional health and wellbeing, not only to benefit themselves but their families and communities too.

Our charitable aim is to provide counselling as widely as possible without profit. We are not funded by the NHS or central government.

There is more than one financial option available.

We are a BACP (The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) accredited service. BACP Accredited Services are high quality, professionally managed therapeutic counselling / psychotherapy services that have been independently assessed as meeting BACP's defined standards across a wide range of criteria.

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.
