Please help us raise £5,000 to create a new counselling room for vulnerable children in Malton. 

We have raised an amazing £3,385, partly thanks to the Table Top sale last weekend, however, there's just seven days to go - the campaign ends 30 October.   If you would like to make a donation please visit our Crowdfunder page, which also provide more information about the project.

Unfortunately, the waiting list for our free brief counselling service for adults in Ryedale (aged 16 and over) and Scarborough Borough (aged 18 and over) Districts is closed due to high demand for these services.  The waiting lists for our chargeable services (Options and Relationship Counselling - both for adults aged 18 and over) and for the Victim Counselling Service (for adults and children) remain open.  

The Young Carers Service (for carers aged between eight and 18 years old) is being relaunched in January 2019.

We provide a range of counselling services to people living in Ryedale and Scarborough Borough Districts, North Yorkshire, including services accredited by our professional body, the BACP

We offer a number of different types of counselling and psychotherapy, including Person-Centred Counselling, Relational and Psychotherpeutic approaches, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Humanistic-Integrative (incorporating Solution-Focused, CBT, Transactional Analysis and creative techniques as appropriate) as well as Couples Counselling.  We also offer trauma recovery work, where appropriate, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). 

Most of our services are free to use thanks to the support of our funders and commissioners.  Our counsellors work within the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and are members of the BACP or the UKCP.  

  • Counselling is typically short-term i.e. an initial assessment appointment followed by six counselling sessions
  • Clients of our Victim Counselling Service, which is commissioned by the Police and Crime Commissioner North Yorkshire, receive 10 counselling sessions plus the initial assessment
  • We also offer a chargeable counselling service, 'Options' which offers clients greater choice, compared to our free-to-access services
  • Sessions are normally held at the same time each week and last between 50 and 60 minutes

We provide equality of services to everyone, regardless of disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation.
