Counselling Directory

Counselling Directory was set up by a team who know how difficult it can be to find the support and information you need. Being a team who between them have experienced various mental health issues, they know how it feels to be overwhelmed.

The team are passionate about counselling and they want to promote the benefits talking therapy can have. They know how important it is to find the right counsellor for you and we are dedicated to making that process as simple as possible. If you are ready to contact a counsellor you can do so on their website here:

They have also created several self-help resources, including a brand new self-care page with downloadable PDFs. When you are going through a difficult time, it can be very easy to keep your worries to yourself and believe that you are the only one experiencing such painful feelings. While we all have our own ways of coping, information and support can make a huge difference.
