We can help you
Whatever is worrying you, we’re here to help. CCTS offers counselling support to anyone who needs it, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religious view or sexuality.
In the light of the current pandemic, we are following Government and professional advice and so we are not able to offer face to face counselling.
We are currently closed to new clients, but are working hard to develop online/phone counselling in order to support people in this challenging time. If you are looking for online counselling now, we have put together some information about where you can find help – see our Covid-19 page.
How does it work?
We offer a safe, secure and confidential one-to-one counselling service. We don’t judge and we won’t tell you what to do; our professionally trained counsellors listen patiently and then help you discover new ways of dealing with the challenges you’re facing. After an initial consultation, which helps us match our service to your needs, we will allocate one of the counselling team to you who will be in touch to arrange a suitable time to meet.
Our counsellors are professionally trained, accountable through regular supervision and work within a professional code of ethics. 87% of our clients have said that they would ‘strongly recommend’ our service to others.
Please be aware that we are currently experiencing high demand for our service and we have had to suspend face to face counselling in light of the current pandemic. We are actively working to reduce the waiting list and on developing our online and phone counselling provision. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

How much does it cost?
As we are providing professional support, fees will apply for both the initial consultation and the counselling service. The consultation fee is £30 and ongoing counselling sessions are £45. A lower level of fees may be agreed, but this depends on your circumstances and the availability of funds. All bursaries are at our discretion and subject to availability. To apply for a bursary, you will need to complete an application form that will be available at your initial consultation or from your counsellor.
We also offer counselling supervision for Accredited or Trainee Counsellors, so if you are interested, please get in touch through the Contact page.
“I felt completely supported by my counsellor through the whole process. She has an amazing way of pinpointing key things I felt or said without realising the impact it was having on me. She was always honest, my biggest encourager, very clear in explaining the journey from start to finish. With her support I am now stable, feel hopeful for the future and left with a good understanding and compassion for myself”
“Counselling provided an open and honest environment where I didn’t feel judged or thought of as any less of a person of value. It has helped me understand my addiction and given me the confidence to discuss it with my wife”
“I think the hardest part of the process was asking for help, but it has been very helpful to have someone to talk things through with. I now have a much better understanding of why I find certain situations stressful or provoke anxiety and I’m much better at acknowledging how I’m feeling without spiralling towards anxiety. I feel more free and peaceful in myself”
