A therapeutic space that offers free short term talking therapy for adults, young people and families

in East London 

How does it work: The Counselling Space is a once-a-week, Tuesdays only, therapeutic service that has been created for the East London community and aims to support all who wishes to access it.

Sessions are free, there is an initial assessment and registration session which can be arranged by filling the form below or calling our lead Counsellor also on the form.  

How can therapy help me: Therapy isn’t a must in our lives. It is said in therapy that those who have been equipped with sufficient nurturing, love and acceptance in young age tend to grow to become emotionally self-sufficient adults and where those nurturing qualities are absent in our early years, we then tend to learn and develop coping mechanisms and cycles- not always healthy or beneficial to us- that we use in order to be accepted or to fit in.​

 

Therapy is not about changing you but instead offering you an interrupted space to find resolutions to what really matters to you 

Simply put, it is a space where you will be listened without being judged, it is confidential, supportive and it will help you find what truly matters to you.

 

Therapists will not tell you how you should live life, they support you to hopefully help alleviate or find resolution to whatever it is that is causing you distress.
