What is Counselling?

Counselling is a professional relationship, between a client and a counsellor. It is a chance for a client to discuss their issues in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. The counsellor will work cooperatively with a client, to help them to explore ways in which they can move forward in their lives.




Abacus Counsellors are qualified to Diploma Level (Stage 3) or above. We are also a training placement, for trainee therapists.



Abacus counsellors have Professional Indemnity Insurance and are DBS checked.


Professional Associations
