If you are struggling with an issue or life event that just won’t go away, then it may be helpful to access our confidential Central Counselling Service. One of our trained team of counsellors will meet with you initially just to chat things through and then meet again if you both think our help is appropriate for you.
Our service operates Monday – Thursday and sessions are by appointment only, at an agreed time between counsellor and client, within the following hours:
Monday 9.30am – 5.00pm
Tuesday to Thursday 9.30 – 7pm
As our evening appointments tend to be popular, offering daytime availability may allow us to see you more quickly.
As a church-based service, all our counsellors are Christian by faith, but those of other faiths or of no faith are welcome to use the service. We seek to be a helpful presence in the heart of the local community that is accessible to all.
Financial contributions are made on a donation basis. Suggested amounts are on a sliding scale depending upon income and range from-
We do encourage all clients to donate where possible but consideration is given to those who are unable to contribute.
We also offer a Fast Track Service for those who can offer £45 per hourly session. Fast Track clients will be prioritised so that they can receive a counsellor as quickly as possible.
