The Counselling Foundation aims to make counselling as affordable and accessible as possible. As a part of our charitable mission, we ask that clients contribute what they feel they can reasonably pay and subsidise sessions for those on low incomes through our contract and commercial counselling and training.
Our charity provides placements to some of our trainees whilst completing their study, meaning we have additional counsellors to see more clients for a lower cost and consequently operate without a waiting list. We also have the support of many volunteers in order to make our service more available.
Our charitable objectives are to provide:
- Relief of suffering from mental or emotional difficulties by the provision of therapeutic counselling
- Education and training of persons in the practice of therapeutic counselling
- The promotion of better mental health and psychological well being
We are a charitable company limited by guarantee and our registered charity number is 1014988.
