Free Counselling

We're delighted to announce that following our initial pilot scheme which launched in December 2015, the free counselling service has returned to the Newton Farm Information Centre. We will be working with degree student counsellors from the University of Worcester, who are in their final year, in order to deliver the service.

This allows us to fulfil our aim in providing counselling for those in need, regardless of income.

Our counsellors are all members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such are committed to on-going training in accordance with the guidelines of the BACP. As well as anything discussed being 100% confidential, in accordance with ethical guidelines set out by the BACP.

Seeking help from a counsellor can, initially, feel stressful and we aim to make the process straightforward. We accept referrals from GP’s, and other services and organisations and also accept self-referrals.

There is a link to the referral form at the bottom of this page, although you can also collect a form from the information centre.

Simply download the document at the bottom of this page and complete it (please try and complete all sections of the form and include a contact telephone number) and return by post in an envelope marked ‘Private and Confidential’ to:

Rebecca Ashton
Newton Farm Community Association
21-23 The Oval,
Newton Farm,


Alternatively, you can drop the form off in person (again in a sealed envelope for the attention of Rebecca, marked ‘Private and Confidential’).

In  the interests of confidentiality, please do NOT email completed forms to us.

We can help you to make sense of what is happening in your life – to begin the process, just fill out a referral form and get in touch.
