Counselling

We offer a free counselling service as well as a private counselling service, both are for people aged 18 and over.

Counselling is talking therapy where someone qualified can work with you for a short or long time (depending on what you need), to help you make changes or make your wellbeing better. Wellbeing is about being comfortable, healthy and happy.

Usually people choose to have therapy because they are having difficulties in their lives and feeling distressed. Sometimes even where people have the most helpful family and friends, they can find it hard to explain why they may be feeling anxious and/or depressed. Or it may be easier to talk about personal, family, or relationship problems with a person who isn’t a friend or family member.

We have both male and female counsellors and they are all qualified. They all have at least a diploma in counselling and are members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). They also are either accredited by the BACP or are working towards their accreditation. This means they work to a level of quality that is expected by the BACP.

Health in Mind takes the referrals for our free counselling service and will decide whether you are suitable for it. Please take a look at our free counselling page for more information about Health in Mind and this service.
