Please note as of Thursday 19th March 2020, we are regrettably not able to take calls or accept new clients for our counselling service. Existing clients, and those who have already received an assessment but have not yet started counselling, will have their sessions either over the telephone or online. This is due to the Government advice given regarding COVID-19 and limiting contact and travel. If that applies to you and you have any questions please email

 Please check here for future updates as we are working hard to open new enquiries to the public, as and when we can.  Thank you for your understanding at this time.

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:


Broxbourne and Ware


St Albans
