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.
Unfortunately, due to a backlog and an extremely long waiting list, we are not able to accept new referrals at this time.
