The Listening Post Counselling Service
Listening Post is a professional voluntary counselling service, Christian in foundation, that was formed almost twenty five years ago to relieve emotional and psychological distress in Christians and non-Christians alike. They are an organisational member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their Ethical Framework. They provide counselling for anyone over 18, regardless of financial status, gender, religion, sexual orientation or ethnic origin.
They serve any resident of Gloucestershire, including those who might otherwise be financially prevented from accessing professional counselling support. Private counselling can cost up to £50 an hour – a cost that many people desperately in need cannot afford. Unlike private practitioners they do not charge a set fee for their services. All they ask is that, based upon individual means, clients make a donation per session.
