The Counselling Service

Who is it for?

Counselling can be accessed by any member of clergy, their partners, and children over the age of 16 who live at the same address.

How can it help?

Counselling can help with a number of issues, including feeling depressed or anxious, relationship difficulties, bereavement, stress, coping with illness, issues around sexuality and identity, childhood abuse and managing transitional life events.

What is offered?

Up to 12 sessions of Individual or Couples Counselling with an accredited Counsellor are available. The cost of the counselling will be met by the Bishop but each client will be asked to make an affordable contribution.
