Christmas Closure

All Foundation centres will be closed over the festive period from the end of Friday 20 December.

All counselling resumes as normal when we re-open on Thursday 2nd January (unless you have been advised differently by your counsellor).

Any new enquiries will be taken in the new year.

If you need support during the Christmas closure you don’t need to suffer alone, you can call the Samaritans at any time on 116 123 or visit their website: samaritans.org.


The Counselling Foundation provides counselling services across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire from five easily accessible and BACP accredited centres.

Once you have contacted your local centre, we will find the right counsellor to suit your needs and availability. One of our counselling administrators will contact you within 2 working days to book your first session with one of our counsellors.

Our services are either provided by our group of qualified counsellors who are also members of a professional body: BACP, BAP or UKCP. In addition our services are provided by our trainees who are in Diploma or Advanced Diploma qualification. We will let you know whether you are being supported by a trainee or a qualified counsellor. All of our counsellors and trainee counsellors are in clinical supervision in accordance with guide lines set out by the BACP.

Please choose your local centre to contact us:

If you need to speak to someone urgently please contact your GP, your nearest A and E department or the Samaritans on their free phone number 116 123.
