Counselling gives you time to talk to someone who will listen, offer support and will not judge you.

Counselling provides a caring and confidential environment where you can talk over problems and think about ways to approach them. We work with people regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, disability or ethnicity.

What sort of issues can counselling help with?

  • Coming to terms with a relationship breakdown or losing someone important to you
  • Worries about redundancy or stress in work
  • Supporting you to feel happier with who you are
  • Improving relationships by working out better ways to communicate
  • Dealing with changes in people’s lives, like having children or living with a long-term illness

We welcome people whether you are experiencing new issues, ongoing problems, past difficulties, or just need a little support.

When you attend

You will be seen by a dedicated member of our team at one of our offices. Your counsellor will ask you about what’s going on and what you’d like to see change by coming to counselling. They might also talk about other support services that you may benefit from.

If you decide to continue with counselling, you and your counsellor will arrange ongoing sessions.

You can work with us for a short time or over the longer term. Our door is always open. 

Cost of Counselling

The average cost of a session is £50. However, we aim to support everybody who comes to us for help and can offer reduced rates if you’re unable to afford the full price.

Stockport Homes

Customers and members of staff at Stockport Homes can get free counselling provided by students on placement at TLC: Talk, Listen, Change. Contact us for more information about this.

Email Counselling

Email counselling enables you to work with a counsellor via email and is useful for people who find it difficult to attend an appointment in person. You’ll be allocated a fully trained counsellor who will work with you for as long as you need help. We will reply to you within four working days of receiving your email.

It costs £28.50 for each email. The reply you get from your counsellor is the equivalent of an hour’s face to face counselling, but with the advantage that you can refer back to the advice whenever you want. We recommend at least four email exchanges with your counsellor, but after that it is up to you to decide how much help you want.

Don’t wait any longer; see how we can help.
