Our Counsellors

All of our counsellors are members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or equivalent professional organisation, and work within the appropriate ethical framework.

Our lead counsellor has over 25 years experience of counselling and support, working with LGBTQ+ helplines, Samaritans, grief, bereavement, loss, life limiting and life changing illnesses etc.

How we deliver

We offer counselling sessions from our main office at the Dudson Centre in Stoke on Trent, and from several other locations in Staffordshire.

If none of these locations are convenient for you, we also offer counselling sessions via telephone and video (Teams).

Our waiting list varies with demand for the service, but it’s typically under 2 months. If you need to be seen urgently, we also offer paid counselling with a shorter wait.
