Gloucestershire Counselling Service (VG)

About this volunteer-involving organisation
GCS is a Gloucestershire-based charity that provides professional counselling and training in counselling skills to the communities of Gloucestershire. Founded in 1980, we have built a strong reputation for delivering high quality clinical work that provides vital support to people through counselling, be they individual adults, couples, children and young people or in the work place, school or GP environment. We are also a training organisation and each year train over 200 candidates from introductory through to post graduate level counselling and listening skills qualifications. In addition to this, we also offer a varied programme of continuous professional development opportunities and workshops in counselling and mental health related issues.
