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.
All are welcome – 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.
One of our trained team of counsellors will meet with you initially to chat things through and then you will be matched up with a counsellor to start your counselling journey depending on your availability and the length of the waiting list.
Our service operates Monday – Thursday and sessions are by appointment only, at an agreed time between counsellor and client, within the following hours:
Monday and Wednesday 9.30am – 6.00pm
Tuesday and Thursday 9.30 – 7.00pm
As our evening appointments tend to be popular, offering daytime availability may allow us to see you more quickly.
