Wantage Counselling Service

Who can make use of counselling

Most people can benefit from talking to a trained and independent counsellor.

We offer individual counselling, couples counselling and counselling to young people 15years or over.

Working in a one to one relationship with a counsellor can help resolve many past and present difficulties and can often make all the difference in helping people cope with difficulties and enable them to feel more at ease with themselves. Literally it can be life changing.

Couples and relationship counselling can be a life-line to couples who are struggling. It can really help to understand how it is you actually relate to each other and how these insights can make all the difference.

Young people face particular challenges and difficulties in our modern world and our trained counsellors can help deal with a whole range of issues from sexual health, family breakdown or anger management, to feelings of inadequacy or fear.

Counselling for Businesses
Occupational health is high on the agenda for many businesses and the mental and emotional well-being of employees is taken seriously by modern management.

Businesses often lack their own resources to deal with stress and other work related emotional issues affecting employees.

The Wantage Counselling and Training Centre can offer businesses a reliable and professional service that can help employees and the needs of your business.

Our Clinical Lead can meet with you to formulate a service package tailored to your needs.
