The Counselling & Family Centre

The charity has over 40 years of experience of providing support for the community's emotional and mental wellbeing.

We offer counselling to adult individuals, couples, families, and to children and young people from 5 years old. Additionally we provide support for families affected by addiction and parents affected by perinatal problems.

Due to Covid-19 we currently offer counselling services remotely through Zoom or by telephone. We are gradually returning to face to face counselling at our Altrincham Centre on Mayors Road, ensuring that our clients, counsellors and operational staff are safe and remain alert.

Beyond counselling we provide self-improvement courses and workshops for all, and training workshops for counsellors and health professionals.

Our counselling services are easy to access - simply drop by, pick up the phone or email. More than 70% of our service users will have an appointment within 2 weeks at a time to suit them - morning, afternoon or evening. 

We also provide a Reach Out Service for people unable to leave their homes. Face-to-face, telephone and video counselling available.

For services we provide around support and courses, please see our website.
