Counselling team

Our counselling team is made up of qualified counsellors and student counsellors (who are on placement with us).

Qualified counsellors based with us become ‘subscribers’, in effect members of our CIC.  This means they have an active role in managing the CIC and are also ‘owners’ of our business so they are consulted via regular team meetings regarding decisions that we make.


If you wish to contact any of the above please email [email protected] and you will be put in touch.
