Community Counselling

We offer an introductory appointment normally within 12 weeks of referral so that together we can see if we are the right service for you and so we can answer any queries you may have.

Client donations are an important source of income to help us continue to provide counselling. An affordable donation will be agreed with you at the appointment.

Your counselling sessions are usually weekly and last for 50 minutes.

All introductory calls are carried out by our experienced staff team. They will help you to feel at ease and help you to decide if counselling with Compass is right for you. All our counsellors work for Compass on a voluntary basis to ensure that counselling is available to all within the local community.
