Our Counselling Service
For more information please contact our Counselling Co-ordinator on:
Many people, at some stage of their life, feel anxious, depressed, isolated or unable to cope. Life events such as the loss of a loved one or an illness can trigger these feelings. Counselling gives you time and space to explore these feelings and to help you make sense of them.
What is Counselling?
Counselling gives you an opportunity to share your thoughts with a trained volunteer Counsellor.
Your Counsellor will support you to overcome and manage feelings that may be troubling you. The aim of counselling is not to give advice or tell you what to do but for you to come to your own solution, by exploring different pathways.
How does the service work?
We offer affordable support to anyone aged over 50. Our Counselling Co-ordinator will talk to you initially and match you with an experienced volunteer counsellor. Your Counsellor will visit you in your own home, or if preferred another confidential place can be found. We recommend an initial six sessions. Further sessions can be arranged as required. All of our counsellors are trained and adhere to the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) or The National Counselling Society.
