Counselling provides a confidential space for people to talk through and manage their feelings. Our short-term model of structured counselling includes up to six sessions, per issue, per year. Our sessions are free of charge and are totally confidential. We offer both face-to-face and telephone support.  


Cognitive behavioural therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) helps people reframe their responses to whatever challenge they may be facing. CBT is delivered by a qualified practitioner across a number of telephone sessions.

Legal guidance

We work with qualified legal specialists to offer confidential guidance to your employees. We can help with a wide range of situations and concerns, from understanding tenancy rights to guiding individuals through the legal considerations of a marriage breakdown. Please note that we’re unable to offer guidance on any matter relating to employment law. Your employees can contact us for expert and impartial legal guidance between 9am and 5pm, Mondays to Fridays, on 0808 801 0808.
