The Counselling Foundation celebrate a bumper year of awards success throughout 2017, where we were short-listed as a finalist for no less than nine awards recognising our work in the charitable sector.
The Foundation’s aim is to remove the stigma surrounding ill mental health and ensure it is seen as important as physical health and have been supporting those experiencing emotional distress since 1974.
We have faced tough competition in each and every one of our nominated categories and are immensely proud of all our nominations and ‘finalists’ accolades. These awards present us with the opportunity to raise awareness of our charity, who and where we are, our services we are able to offer in our communities across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, including affordable counselling services, professional counselling training courses, and business counselling service.
Our charitable mission enables people on low-incomes to have access to much needed affordable long-term counselling which is not widely available in the county and every week we help hundreds of people in our communities access counselling who would not otherwise receive counselling.
