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 problems.  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.

The psychodynamic counselling that we offer at CCF 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.

We are able to offer assessment sessions and ongoing counselling face-to-face, or via telephone or video to individual clients, and via video only for couples.  Face-to-face counselling takes place at our premises in Chelmsford.  In order to access counselling with us, you will need to contact us to arrange an initial assessment session and you will find more details about how to do this on our Counselling pages.

All counsellors at CCF are members of the BACP (the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.



We are accepting applications for our 2024/25 Certificate in Counselling Skills, Diploma in Counselling Skills and Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling training course that commence in September 2024. If you are interested in any of our training courses, course information and application forms are available under the individual course headings, via our  Training Overview page or please email kelliew@chelmsfordcounselling.org.uk

We are also offering a schedule of CPD (Continuous Personal Development) workshops to qualified counsellors/therapists as well as clinical trainees. Please navigate to our CPD Workshops page for more details and how to make a booking, or contact kelliew@chelmsfordcounselling.org.uk.

CCF’s training courses are accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
