Yes, with CCS all counselling sessions are confidential. The exception would be if you were to pose a danger to yourself or others, in which case the relevant parties would be notified.
Our fees are subsidised by the South England Conference. If you are not able to pay for counselling, please contact the us and we discuss available options for you.
Your counsellor will take the time to get to know you and give you a chance to ask questions about how we work and the services we can offer. If you decide to come regularly, you will see the same counsellor at the same time every week for up to 50 minutes. We offer a maximum of 12 sessions, with a review. They will listen carefully to you and encourage you to speak freely and openly about what’s troubling you. They will help deal with your concerns and support you in a non-judgemental way to make your own decisions. Counselling sessions can help you to gain clarity on an issue, change old patterns, untangle complex personal issues, or embark on a journey of self-development.
Your counsellor will be available to you at your scheduled appointment time only. In the case of an emergency you will need to seek other resources. Contact your GP, the Samaritans (call 116 123, www.samaritans.org), or, if necessary, emergency services.
