We’re a team of qualified and experienced counsellors based at Alphacom House, Oakhill Road in Horsham.
We operate as a Community Interest Company (CIC), our social mission is to offer an affordable community based counselling service to adults, children and young people in Horsham, Crawley and the surrounding areas..
Our counselling team can help support you if you are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, relationship difficulties or simply if you want to make some changes in your life. We aim to see you as promptly as we can and with flexibility around appointments. We are committed to working at your pace – so we can offer both short and long term therapy.
As a result of the government’s change in guidance we have now suspended all face to face counselling at Alphacom House but we are still open. We also have a page of resources and signposting around COVID-19 which we hope will help, just click here
and we’re planning for a resumption of face to face counselling as soon as we are able. Appointments for telephone assessments for counselling are available and our counselling team have transitioned to counsel our existing clients by telephone and via the internet. Please be aware we do have a waiting list to begin counselling.
We know that this is is a difficult time – you’re welcome to contact us via phone or email.
Due to the outbreak our admin team are working on reduced hours currently – we are open Mon-Thurs 9am-12 then 1pm to 3pm and Fridays 9am-12.30pm. Outside of these times please leave a message or send us an email and we will come back to you.
In the meantime if you should need urgent mental health support for any reason please call the Sussex Mental Healthline on 0300 5000 101 (manned 24 hours a day).
