We all experience issues at different stages in our lives. Experiences such as bereavement and loss, relationship and family difficulties, and stresses at home or work can all have an impact. Being able to get the right support can be really important. Compass has developed the following range of services:
Compass is a charity that does not receive any NHS funding. To meet the needs of our local community we offer a range of services.

Why come for counselling?
We offer an assessment appointment normally within 6 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. An affordable donation will be agreed with you at your assessment appointment.Your counselling sessions are usually weekly and last for 50 minutes. We offer up to a maximum of 24 sessions.
Counselling for You (CFY)
Compass also provides counselling to individuals that are able to pay for their therapy. This is in addition to our Community Counselling Service and is a way to access our counselling services without waiting.
Counselling for Employees of Companies and Organisations who Have a Contract with Us
If your workplace has a contract with us they will have arranged to fund a set number of counselling sessions for you. Counselling takes place away from the workplace at our City Centre offices.
Counselling for Asylum Seekers and Refugees
We have funding from Liverpool City Council to provide counselling support for Refugees and Asylum Seekers who are living in the Merseyside area. For these members of our community, accessing therapeutic support can be a difficult process and the specific aim of this fund is to reach this client group. We accept referrals from other organisations in the area who identify clients who may benefit from counselling and clients can also self-refer. In addition, we can arrange an interpreter to be present for clients if required.
Surviving to Thriving
Thanks to the National Lottery Community fund, Compass is now able to offer bespoke support for adults on Merseyside who have experienced childhood sexual abuse or exploitation. The support will be available initially for one to one sessions to work through a tailored programme of support that enables people to move from not just surviving the abuse but being able to thrive in the present. This programme uses a handbook for recovery that can be adapted to individual needs as they work through the programme.
Bereavement Support Groups
We have funding from Liverpool City Council to provide group bereavement support for Liverpool residents. We accept referrals from other organisations in the area who identify clients who may benefit from counselling and clients can also self-refer. We will provide a holistic approach, recognising the impact of loss on both the physical and the mental health of the individual. Two groups are due to start in March, with a further two groups due to start in September 2022.
