Suffolk Mind Counselling Service

Our easy to access weekly counselling service provides personal and confidential one-to-one support from our counsellors for anyone aged 18+. Counselling offers the space, with an impartial counsellor to explore issues that are presenting in life and are causing difficulties. These could be relationships, family issues, personal crisis, bereavement or other problems you may be dealing with.  

Is it for me?

Counselling is a process people seek when they want to change something in their lives or simply explore their thoughts and feelings. A counsellor is not there to tell you what to do – instead, they will encourage you to talk about what is worrying you. Counselling does not come in a cookie-cutter format and each session is generally tailored to the individual.

Counselling has significantly reduced my levels of anxiety, improved my family relationships and given me a more positive outlook on my future. It provided me with sustainable tools for maintaining mental wellbeing. Thank you Suffolk Mind
