Compass is here to help if you need us!
Compass staff and our team of amazing volunteers can provide remote sessions to all of our clients. We are currently providing telephone and video counselling to our current clients.
Please note that we are putting a hold on new referrals for Community Counselling for the foreseeable future due to an increased waiting list. We will update on here once we are open to new referrals.
Please note we are also unable to process new Surviving to Thriving referrals or Pioneer referrals for Asylum Seekers either, as both projects funding streams are not being renewed.
Compass is launching a new strand of the service, Bereavement Support Groups, which has been funded by Liverpool City Council for Liverpool residents. The intention is for a group of 8-10 people to start the support groups in May, if you feel you would benefit from the service or know someone who will, please see here for more information.
Please be advised that Compass is putting a pause on new Counselling For You referrals, if you are looking for private counselling at present, we suggest you consider the BACP website – Find a Therapist. Once we are in a position to open to new Counselling For You referrals we will advise.
Are you a Qualified Counsellor yourself? Would you be interested in joining our fantastic volunteer team, then please contact ourselves on 0151 237 3993 or email firstname.lastname@example.org as we are recruiting now! Please see our Counsellor page for more information.
We run both Level 2 Introduction to Counselling and Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills courses, with the next Introduction to Counselling due to start in April 2022. Please note that this course is held online.
It will be our intention to host two Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills courses, one daytime and one evening slot to accommodate the significant interest in our courses from September 2022. If you are interested in our courses or training please contact ourselves. It is hoped that these courses will be run face to face but will depend on any restrictions at the time. We also plan to host the Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills from January 2023 for the first time.
We are unable to see any visitors to the service without a prior appointment and this would only be where other options were not available.
Our service is supported by the Steve Morgan Foundation and the Community Match Challenge – part of the governments £750m support package for charities #CommunitiesCan
Mon – Friday 9.30 – 4.00pm
