Passionate about promoting positive mental health.

The Counselling Foundation is a leading charity that has provided counselling and counsellor training for the better mental health of our communities in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire since 1974.

One in four of us is affected by mental health. We believe that no one should suffer in silence and everyone should have access to support, regardless of income.

Counselling Services

Our charitable mission enables people on low incomes to have access to affordable, long term counselling which is not widely available elsewhere in the two counties.

We’re here to help those experiencing emotional distress to enhance their wellbeing, whilst raising the awareness and advance the understanding of mental health.

We have centres in St Albans, Luton, Bedford, Broxbourne, Ware, and Stevenage.

“ Counselling has really helped me feel like myself again! ”

Training

Our counsellor training service promotes personal development and growth whilst supporting communities through the provision of further qualified counsellors providing a talking therapy.

We have a vast range of part time courses for those looking to become counsellors or looking to improve and use communication skills in their personal or professional lives.
