'Counselling has enabled me to move forward in my life and has helped me to reflect on where I am today.' 


Following an in-depth initial consultation with new clients, we make appropriate referrals to our team of counsellors, based on the counsellor's level of experience and therapeutic approach.  All our counsellors work under the supervision of experienced counselling practitioners and abide to the BACP Code of Ethics.

Group Therapy at WLM HCC 

WLM HCC is starting a year-long therapeutic group for adults, and we are open to new client referrals.

Group therapy has a long, proven record as a highly effective and useful form of psychotherapy.

It is as helpful as, and in some cases more helpful than, individual therapy particularly when social support and learning about interpersonal relationships are important objectives of treatment.

Group therapy offers you an opportunity to:

  • Receive and offer feedback
  • Improve interpersonal relations and communication
  • Talk honestly and directly about feelings
  • Gain insight and understanding into ones’ own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors by looking at relationship patterns both inside and outside the group
  • Gain understanding of other people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
  • Improve self-confidence, self-image and self-esteem
  • Undergo personal change inside the group with the expectation of carrying that learning over into one’s outside life.

'I am so much more comfortable with myself, I’m happier and have moved on to do things that I never would’ve done before therapy.' Jonathan

WLM HCC is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and all our counsellors abide by the BACP Ethical Framework.

Further to this, WLM HCC offers high-quality clinical placement opportunities to training counsellors, who are working towards their professional development. 

Would I be able to access this service?

If you live within travelling distance of the service then you would be able to use our service.

Referrals come from individuals as well as via local GP’s, the NHS and a diverse range of statutory and voluntary agencies.

Those who use our counselling come from a broad cross-section of the local community, people of all ages (over 18) and from a diverse range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds.  We also aim to offer the service in as many non-English languages as possible.

'I am grateful I could afford weekly sessions as I would not be able to if I had gone elsewhere.'
