Counselling

Who is counselling for?

Chelmsford Counselling Foundation offers a confidential counselling service to individuals and couples aged 18 and over living in Chelmsford and the wider Essex area.  People from all backgrounds and areas of the community may find counselling helpful at particular times in their life.

Why do people seek counselling?

People seek counselling for many different reasons.  They may be experiencing feelings of depression, isolation, anxiety or low self-esteem that keep them stuck in an uncomfortable place.  They may be facing a life-changing event, struggling with relationships, grief or anger, or feel unable to cope with the pressures and challenges of life.  Some may be confused as to why they react as they do to people or events, while for others it may be memories from the past, painful occurrences in the present or worries about the future that prevent them from enjoying life as they would wish.

How can counselling help?

Counselling offers a confidential, supportive service and the opportunity for change. It provides a safe space to explore thoughts and feelings with someone who is trained to listen in a non-directive way and to facilitate an individual’s own resources for change and the resolution of difficulties.
