Over the 10 years that Counselling Together has been in operation we have been privileged to support over 450 clients. We currently have 10 counsellors and are offering over 100 counselling sessions a month. At the end of each period of counselling, every client is asked to complete a comprehensive evaluation form to help us monitor how well the service is performing.
Listen to some comments from recent clients, please note - comments are spoken by actors in the video for confidentiality.
