The Counselling Foundation is a leading charity established in 1974 which provides affordable counselling and professional counsellor training for the better mental health of the communities of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
Our charitable mission enables people on low incomes to have access to affordable, long term counselling which isn’t available elsewhere in the two counties. Our counsellor training service promotes personal development and growth whilst supporting communities through the provision of further qualified counsellors providing a talking therapy.
Founded in 1974 , the Foundation has now become one of the largest counselling and training centres outside of London, with five centres and 150 staff and counsellors delivering over 30,000 counselling sessions a year to those who are suffering from emotional distress in order to enhance the individual’s wellbeing. We strive to get people the help they need regardless of income and aim to stamp out the stigma surrounding mental health.
Our management team mostly have a clinical background so we are unique in having people working and running our organisation who understand counselling and are passionate about this work. Within our team of 150 are many of our former trainees and volunteers who enjoy giving us their time – we enable people to help themselves and others and that’s why we’re here.
