The Awareness Centre provides a multilingual counselling, psychotherapy, psychology and psychosexual and relationship therapy service. We work with individuals, couples, families and groups. Our therapists offer face to face and Skype sessions.

Based on the client’s personal preference and income status, our therapists provide NHS, Low Cost and Private Therapy. They offer a safe and confidential space so you can explore your issues with warmth, empathy, acceptance and respect.

Therapy is not about giving advice or telling you what to do. It is about listening to you without judgement, enabling you to explore your thoughts and feelings. It is about helping you gain new perspectives about yourself and support you in resolving your difficulties as well as helping you find new ways of coping with a greater sense of control and choice in your life. Our Counsellors appreciate and respect difference and diversity in culture, age, ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, physical ability and spirituality.
