Counselling at AFC

An affordable and accessible service for the local community

Life can be challenging
Anxieties, pressures and stresses can be rooted in the past, while making an impact in the present. They can also be the consequence of current circumstances, which are challenging and difficult to manage. Whatever the nature of the problems you are facing, they can lead to: overwhelming thoughts that run away with you; a struggle to make decisions; the feeling that your behaviours or those of people around you are hard to understand; or you can be driven to a sense of isolation and struggle to find somewhere to turn.

Counselling can help
Counselling offers the opportunity to work towards gaining understanding, finding acceptance or making the change you seek. Sometimes we are unsure about why we feel as we do and would like to work through why that is. Counselling is a valuable way of achieving this, offering therapeutic support which enables you to explore your thoughts and feelings freely, without the impositions of daily life.

Who we are
We are a group of qualified and experienced counsellors. Through short term therapy,we offer a range of approaches and techniques which means that we can tailor sessions in the most effective way to help you with the issues you face. We can offer support with a wide range of issues, including:

*Anxiety *Depression *Anger *Relationships *Stress *Loss *Trauma *Health anxiety *Carer role *OCD *Sexuality *Phobias and fears *Life changes *Work issues

Sessions, donations and location
We offer up to 12 sessions to each person. You are invited to use some or all of these sessions, depending on the nature of your issues. We ask for an agreed donation of £20 to £40 per session booked, which can be paid in advance or session-by-session. Please get in touch if you need extra financial support to access our service. Our service is located at Adeyfield Free Church Centre on Maylands Avenue in Hemel Hempstead.

How to get in touch and what happens next
Our contact details are at the bottom of this page. Once you have got in touch by phone or e-mail, you will be offered a short telephone assessment with one of our Counsellors. The assessment will help us to identify how we can help you best. We are here to help and we look forward to hearing from you.
