Counselling at The Junction

If you are worried, anxious, or going through some struggles in your life right now, but not sure how to deal with them, come and talk to us.

We provide counselling in a safe and confidential environment. You will find someone to talk to who listens to you, cares for you, gives you emotional support and empowers you to find a solution.

You don’t need to book in advance, just pop in to speak to one of our team members about counselling and they will be able to give you the information you need.

Counselling at The Junction is a free service. Our sessions last for 50 minutes, once a week. Most people come to counselling for several sessions over a few weeks, but everyone is different. You are in charge, so pop in to speak to us and we will be able to assist you further.

If you would like to speak to us beforehand, feel free to contact us:
