A safe place to talk.

Our mission is to offer you a safe place to come and talk confidentially about whatever is troubling you.

We are a long-established and trusted service offering one-to-one individual counselling to adults in our private building.  Counselling takes place on the first floor of Compass House which is accessed by a flight of stairs. Should this make it difficult to

attend regular sessions or if you cannot travel to us, we can offer Zoom counselling

appointments by request.

Compass is an accredited member of BACP and we abide by their Ethical Framework, so you can be sure of the professionalism of all aspects of our service.

How can counselling help?

Sometimes it’s just too difficult to tackle relationship, personal or emotional difficulties on your own, and you may feel that cannot talk to family or friends about them.

That’s where counselling can come in – it is a safe place to explore worries and problems you may never have been able to talk about with anyone. Our counsellors are trained to listen non-judgmentally, and to help you explore these issues. And of course, it is all confidential.

Anxiety and work stress

Bereavement and loss
