Wantage Counselling Service was founded in 1984 to provide counselling for individuals,couples and young people over the age of 15 years. We work with people who, like many of us, can experience times when life seems difficult. We may feel under pressure, anxious, depressed or in need of another’s perspective. Counselling offers the opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings in a reliable, independent relationship where trust and confidentiality are respected and recognised as essential. It involves becoming aware of past patterns in our lives, looking at the limitations we experience in ourselves and perhaps taking risks to gain new strength.
The counselling we provide is given irrespective of an ability to pay the full fee. As a registered charity we are heavily reliant on fundraising in order to offer this valuable service. To date nearly 3,000 people from the surrounding South Oxfordshire and West Berkshire areas have made use of the Service.
