Cheddar Valley Counselling Service

Supported by Cheddar Valley Churches

Why talk to a Counsellor?

Most people experience problems and difficulties from time to time.



There are times when a crisis may occur or you have a problem or worry that you feel you cannot share with someone close or with someone you know.



A trained counsellor is someone with whom you can share your worries, fears and anxieties in a safe non-judgemental and confidential environment. Our counsellor is a member of the British Association for Counselling and the Association of Christian Counsellors and abides by the Code of Ethics established by those bodies.


How can Counselling Help?

Counselling is not a cure. However it can help you to explore your thoughts and feelings without judgement, unwanted advice or interruption. It can help you to understand your difficulties and explore ways of making changes or finding solutions. It can rebuild self-confidence and give you the ability to manage future stress.

Assistance is regularly given for difficulties such as:

  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Personal Growth
  • Relationships
  • Abuse
  • Crisis Pregnancy
  • Stress
  • Eating Disorders

However we have a willingness to look at all problems.
