Supporting you through difficulty to a positive future

Easy access to free Counselling and Psychotherapy

How It Works

Emergency Care

Anchor Counselling is not an emergency service.  If you are in crisis now, do not hesitate.  Please contact the Samaritans, anytime on their free number 116 123, or call emergency services on 999, or go to your nearest Accident & Emergency hospital.

Referring for Treatment

We offer free counselling either face-to-face or via zoom or phone. All our therapists are accredited and qualified. The first step is an assessment with one of our counsellors followed by up to six free sessions. You can refer yourself or ask your GP to refer you. It is always helpful to see your GP as there may be other types of support you can access at the same time.

How We Can Help

We are a group of psychotherapists and counsellors dedicated to helping people who otherwise would struggle to find help and support.

The Difference We Make

Our clients come from all walks of life, culture, religion, race and ages and we work in an inclusive way to ensure that the thousands of people we see receive the best possible care to help them gather the resilience, clarity and confidence towards having a better future and wellbeing. We are committed to include all and provide therapy in different languages, and where possible, through multilingual therapists

Why Choose Anchor Counselling?

Our therapists have extensive experience and are accredited with the two major professional associations for members of the counselling professions in the UK, UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). All of our therapists are fully qualified and undergo regular continuous professional development which is regularly checked by the professional associations. They are also DBS cleared and certified which means they have had background checks done before being permitted to work with clients.

Our Therapies

We work in a client centric way to offer the most suitable support for the individual needs of our clients. Our recovery rates are high and our clients give us excellent feedback about their experience with Anchor. Our focus is on discovering new ways of supporting our clients that will help them throughout their lives, not just for their time with Anchor.

TESTIMONIALS

I had a good experience of your service. My counsellor was professional and helped me with her patience and understanding to understand myself. I feel after 6 weeks so much better and happy.

I had a very difficult time in some very personal issues which thanks to the counsellor helped me to get through.

Counselling gave me a different point of view to understand and helped me be able to cope and continue in life. I would like to say thank you to her for all her help and efforts.
