The Counselling Centre

Carrs Lane Counselling Centre celebrates the renewal of its accreditation by BACP and continues to celebrate 50 years of caring in the city centre.

The trustees of Carrs Lane Counselling Centre, CLCC Ltd, which was founded fifty years ago by members of the church and now operates as an independent charity, are delighted to announce that CLCC Ltd. has successfully renewed its membership of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy for the next four years. This means that the organisation continues to achieve the rigorous standards expected by this professional body and to remain a highly respected counselling service in the city.

Invitation to attend our Health and Wellness Fair at The Church at Carrs Lane on Saturday 28th July, 2018 from 12.00pm until 4pm.

We are also continuing to celebrate our fiftieth year by offering an Open Day event in the form of a Health and Wellness Fair. Considerable energy has already been expended by trustees and volunteers to make this an afternoon to remember. The fair is advertised elsewhere on the website in more detail. It is designed to give people an opportunity to explore ways of staying physically and mentally healthy. Stalls run by different organisations will offer information and support. Workshops on mindfulness and relaxation will take place throughout the afternoon and visitors will be able to partake in a little retail therapy too with healthy living products, home-made cakes, hot food, loved and pre-loved items and refreshments available amongst many other delights. Children are welcome and have free entry if under 18. There will be face painting and other activities available for them to enjoy. Entry for adults costs only £1.

What type of counselling do we provide?

We are a registered charity whose aim is to provide a low cost counselling service to the community for adults 18 or over.

We provide a confidential service within a safe and comfortable environment where you can gain an understanding of the challenges you face and the emotional distress you may be experiencing.

We use a person-centred/integrative model. Our approach is non-judgemental and focuses on a relationship of trust between you and your counsellor. This encourages you to explore the options available to you and support you to make decisions which will enable you to work towards living in a more satisfactory way. We offer one to one, couple and group therapy.

We hold Service Accreditation Award from The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

What problems do we work with?

Our counsellors will support you with a variety of issues including:

  • Bereavement
  • Low self-esteem
  • Depression
  • Loss
  • Mental, verbal or physical abuse
  • Relationship challenges
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
