Affordable counselling for the community

We are grateful for support from the National Lottery Community Fund

Covid Update – Ashford Counselling Service is now able to provide counselling face to face in our offices in addition to providing telephone and online counselling.


Ashford Counselling Service is committed to helping those in need by providing professional and affordable counselling services to the local area.  We all have times in our lives that are more difficult than others.  Sometimes this leads to our feelings and emotions becoming overwhelming and more than we can cope with.

Counselling, sometimes called talking therapy, involves meeting regularly with a counsellor to talk about your problems, in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space.

Professional Support from a counsellor can help you deal with:

  • ​depression, low mood
  • anxiety, panic attacks, paranoia
  • low self-esteem, self harm
  • anger issues, emotional control
  • bereavement, redundancy, divorce
  • trauma/surviving abuse
  • personal growth


Our clients may be referred to us by their GP, or they may self refer.

Self referral
