Counselling West Lancs

Contact: Denise Hare

Tel: 07740 463 311

 

Email: counsellingwestlancs@gmail.com

 

ABOUT US

Our service will operate independently providing Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, mediation and life skills. Our work will be sourced through local CIC’s, networking, care providers, GP’s and community hubs. As counsellors our services are universal to the needs of anyone who feels they would benefit from counselling. This could either be on a 1-2-1 basis or group sessions. Often, we find counselling is sought after particularly by individuals who are on the margins of society and have multiple, complex needs. It is well recognised that these groups have high levels of mental health amongst others. The company’s activities will provide benefit to our local area, where there is a high level of social and economic deprivation.
