Sometimes it isn't easy to talk about difficulties we are going through, even with people we are close to. Often we feel like we don't have anyone to turn to for emotional support and need someone to listen to us. Speaking to a counsellor may help. A counsellor is professionally trained to help us explore and understand what we are going through without giving any advice, criticism or judgement about any situation.
CoCo is a social enterprise that supports people through counselling.
We offer a fee-paying service (£40-£50 per session) that allows short or long-term counselling.
We offer a subsidised service (£25 per session) for students.
We also offer affordable counselling (5-£35 per session) to those who are unable to access counselling due to financial reasons. It is our policy never to turn anyone away if they are unable to pay.
We are a non profit organisation. If you are able to pay for counselling, you will be helping us support those that are unable to pay.
Once you contact us we will make a note of your details which will be kept confidential. An initial appointment will be made to discuss whether counselling may be helpful to you, your availability for regular sessions and what payment you are able to make.
Counselling in Communities (CoCo) is a safe and confidential space to access one-to-one counselling with a trained and qualified counsellor. Please contact us if you feel that it may help to speak to someone about personal or professional challenges that are affecting your lives.
We offer support in areas such as:
•Bereavement, loss or pregnancy
•Isolation, anxiety, depression or stress
•Self-confidence and self-esteem
•Abuse or violence
If you would like to go ahead with counselling, you will be offered a weekly 50-minute session on an agreed day and time every week for up to 12 weeks. Within the fee-paying service, you have the option of long-term counselling.
If the times you request are full, you will be put on a waiting list and contacted when a space become available.
