Simeon Centre Counselling Service

talk3Many of us, at times, long for someone to sit and listen to our troubles and grievances. At the Simeon Centre a trained counsellor is there to listen to you, help you to solve problems, resolve conflicts, make tough designs and come to terms with things that cannot be changed.

All of the counsellors work to the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and confidentiality is a must. They are also subject to ongoing training and regular supervision.

The Simeon Centre is staffed by male and female volunteer counsellors who give their time freely each week.

The centre is open every week day from 09.00 until 16:00 and Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

How to Make an Appointment:
Appointments can be made by contacting the Centre by telephone or email.
