One to One Support


Our counselling services are led by Sarah, our Therapeutic Lead. All of our counsellors are BACP Registered. The team is split into two, child and adolescent counselling and adult counselling. Once referred you will be offered an initial assessment at a mutually convenient time. Once you have been assessed you will be added to the waiting list, waiting for a suitable counselling session that we can offer you. Our counselling sessions can be in person, online via Zoom or on the telephone. Each session will last for 50 minutes.

Our counselling service is a little different to some organisations – we do not offer a set number of counselling sessions. You will have a regular review to ensure that counselling is still beneficial, but you will have as many sessions as your counsellor and you feel that you need. This gives you a chance to feel comfortable opening up to your counsellor so that you can work on the issues that brought you to counselling in the first place. Our counselling sessions are offered on a weekly basis, once you are assigned a counsellor you will stay with them until your counselling ends.

Counselling can be a confidential space to explore your concerns with someone who is able to support you and help you to find a way forward. Counsellors don’t tell you what to do but will explore with you different ways in which you can cope with the challenges that you are currently facing.
