Mind Halton Counselling Service

About Us


When we experience problems it is often helpful to talk over the situation with some else. This could be a friend or family member, but there are times when it can be useful to talk to a person who is outside the situation, who has professional skills and experience to assist people with emotional and psychological difficulties.

Counselling offers the opportunity to explore issues in a private setting with someone who has no other role in your life. It offers you an opportunity to discuss concerns in a way which is different to talking to a friend or family member. Many people find that talking things over with a trained counsellor who is not directly involved can offer a new perspective.

Our counselling service has been established in Halton for over 10 years and we recruit our counsellors who have studied or are studying at excellent Universities and Colleges in the North West and we are members of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) who are the largest counselling body in the UK.

We offer professional and confidential one to one counselling sessions in a comfortable and safe environment where you can feel relaxed and able to discuss concerns freely.

One to one counselling for Halton residents aged 17+ and can be accessed by self-referral as well as health and social care agencies.

Monday & Tuesday 9.30am until 6.45pm.

Wednesday & Thursday 9.30am until 5.00pm,

Friday 9.30 until 12.30

We aim to provide a low cost counselling service and as such ask clients to consider making a donation for each of their sessions. We recognize that it’s very difficult to put a price on good health, however, your donation will enable us to continue to provide the service you have been provided with.

If you can afford it you might wish to consider a donation of up to £10.00 waged and £5.00 unwaged.
