To take account of the current UK situation with regard to Coronavirus, and to try to maximise the health and wellbeing of our clients, counsellors and staff, and in line with government advice, the management team of CCF has taken the decision to temporarily suspend face to face counselling. Telephone counselling will be offered to current clients, who have expressed an interest, in the next week few weeks. Other than that it is business as usual. Please use our contact number or email for any enquiries.


We have adapted our training and our 2019/20 courses are going ahead as scheduled and we are very much open for applications for our 2020/21 BACP accredited training.

If you are interested in our Training Courses, application forms are available under the course headings and will continue to process them as quickly as possible.

People come to Chelmsford Counselling Foundation (CCF) for many reasons – for example as a result of depression, anxiety, loneliness, difficulty in facing life’s circumstances or relationship difficulties.  For some, memories about the past, painful events in the present or worries about the future may mean they cannot enjoy life or live it in the way they would wish.

Psychodynamic counselling can help you to understand how past experiences and current behaviour may be linked.  It allows space to explore thoughts and feelings about yourself as an individual and in relationships with others with someone trained to listen in a non-directive way.  CCF’s counselling service is accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
