  • Why Counselling?

    Counselling is a safe environment where you can be listened to with acceptance and without prejudice allowing you to discuss your problems within a confidential relationship with the counsellor. It can help you work through or cope with difficulties or problems such as:-

    • Mental or emotional illness
    • Physical and terminal illness
    • Relationship breakdown
    • Bereavement & loss
    • Depression, anxiety
    • Eating Disorder
    • Childhood trauma & abuse
    • Low self esteem
    • Various crisis situations
    • Spirituality and stress issues
    • Work related stress
     Talking things through and having someone to share your journey with really does make a difference.

    We offer counselling to anyone aged over 16 who is in need.  We are a Christian organisation, but you don’t have to be a Christian to use the service.  Counselling would only include issues of faith at your request.


    No set charge is made for the service, but we ask clients to agree to make a regular donation towards the cost of their counselling however minimal, as we rely on donations to continue the service.

      Starting Counselling

      We will take your details over the telephone. We will then contact you offering an initial appointment.

      Please be aware that at times we do have a waiting list and this may take a few weeks

      Counselling sessions are available Monday – Friday 9.15 am – 5.00pm and also Monday, Wednesday and Thursday eveings up to 8.30pm.

    The initial appointment would normally last for an hour, where you can discuss areas that you feel need addressing, and ask any questions you may have. After this appointment, you will be placed as soon as possible with the counsellor who we feel is best able to help you.  We make a contract with each person who uses the service where individual requirements are noted. 

    To arrange an appointment or for more information please phone 01484 461098.
