Hello! Welcome to the online home of Community Counselling.
Community Counselling was set up by Ryedale Voluntary Action in 1995 to provide an accessible and confidential counselling service to people, aged 18 and over, living in North Yorkshire. It became an independent charity in April 2013. Most of our services are free to clients, thanks to the generous support of our funders and commissioners.
We offer counselling at a range of venues and times to suit clients. Counselling is typically short-term i.e. six sessions. Sessions are normally weekly, lasting between 50 and 60 minutes.
Our Specialist Counselling Service also offers long-term counselling to people who have experienced, or have been affected by, domestic abuse, sexual violence or sexual abuse. Please note that, unfortunately, the waiting list for this service is currently closed to new referrals.
For more information about where and when we operate, and how you can access our services, please go to the About Us page.
Community Counselling is an Accredited Service with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). The scheme provides robust evidence of service quality and professionalism.
