Counselling services at St Vincent's Centre, Leeds

***We regrettably have had to suspend our counselling service for the time being​. We hope to have it back up and running in the near future***

St Vincent’s Counselling Service offers up to 20 sessions of free counselling to individuals, giving time to fully address emotional issues and to enable them to move forward with their lives. We take referrals from GPs, other agencies and individuals themselves so that anyone who needs help can access it.

The team of volunteer counsellors are all qualified, or in the final stages of studying to qualify as a counsellor. Counsellors see their clients in weekly appointments, building relationships and trust.

Counselling gives individuals the time and space to talk things over with someone skilled in helping them to work out how they can cope with things and for them to develop the abilities to get the best out of their lives.

We work within the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’s Code of Ethics.
