The Counselling Foundation is a leading charity providing low cost, quality counselling & counsellor training for the better mental health & educational advancement of our communities.

Listening for over 40 years, our charitable mission aims to make counselling as accessible & affordable as possible. Counselling is a talking therapy within a safe & supportive environment where you can share anything that is troubling you & be listened to in a way that helps you understand yourself better.

The Foundation is a 'not for profit' organisation, a charity whose aim is to make counselling more accessible & affordable to our communities. If you choose an open-ended service, we ask you to pay only what you can reasonably afford.  Access to our free short term counselling is available via your GP.  Please speak to your doctor & ask to be referred to us.

When you make contact with one of our 5 centres, you can discuss the counselling you prefer or if you are unsure you can ask when you come in for your assessment.  We seek to ensure that everyone sees one of our counsellors within two weeks of enquiry.
