Cornerstone Counselling

Covid-19 Update

We are still OPEN and currently offering all counselling online (using Zoom or Skype) or by telephone.  Our standard fee is normally £40 per 50 minute session, but we are keen to make counselling affordable for everyone at this time and so are able to offer time limited counselling from as little as £10 per session, depending on your circumstances. The first step is to arrange an initial assessment session with us and there is a £10 fee for this.

 

What is Cornerstone?

Cornerstone is a well established professional counselling service based at St Peter’s Church. We are a registered charity and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

What do we offer?

We provide help for people with many different needs including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, self-esteem, anger management, abuse, family/relationship issues, problems at work and bereavement. Our counsellors come from all walks of life, and have developed their own areas of specialism and ways of working with clients. We always look to allocate the right counsellor for your particular needs.

You will have the opportunity to explore your experiences and feelings and work through difficult issues in your life. Over a number of weeks we aim to come alongside you in these difficulties, helping you to gain a better understanding of yourself and your circumstances. Counselling invites you to change by helping you to find new strength and the freedom to make your own choices. Counselling is based on listening and is not about giving you advice, telling you what to do or judging you. It can, however, enable you to see things from a new perspective.

​We work with many counselling ideas and offer counselling based on models such as:

  • Person-centred therapy

  • Existential therapy

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy

  • Psychodynamic therapy

  • Transactional analysis

  • Mindfulness practice

  • Gestalt therapy

 

 

Who can we help?

We provide short and longer term counselling support to individuals and couples (aged 18 and above) irrespective of religion, ethnic origin, gender or sexual orientation.

You do not have to be a member of St Peter’s Church or a Christian to be able to use the services of Cornerstone. All counselling is provided on a strictly confidential basis.

 

Who are our Counsellors?

Who are our Counsellors?

​We have ten counsellors who are all professionally trained for the work they do and adhere to the BACP Ethical framework for counselling professionals. We offer placements to those in the final stages of their counselling training. All counsellors receive professional supervision and are accountable to the organisation for the work they do. Everybody holds a current DBS.

 

What about money?

Cornerstone is a non-profit making organisation. In order to meet our costs, we do ask people who use the service to make a payment for each session and an affordable amount is agreed with you at your initial assessment. We would not wish anyone to be deterred from making enquiries because of an anxiety about cost.

 

What happens when you approach Cornerstone?

When you first make contact, you will be invited to meet one of our senior counsellors for a 50 minute assessment session. There is a £10 fee for this. This will involve taking some background information from you, exploring what you would like from counselling and explaining what we can offer.

​If you then wish to proceed, you will be assigned a counsellor who will see you on a regular basis, for as long as necessary for your particular needs.

​You will be offered weekly counselling sessions of 50 minutes, ideally at the same time and day each week. We normally ask you to agree to six sessions to begin with.

 

What will happen next?

If you wish to proceed, then the information that you have given will be passed to one of our Supervisors for them to assign a counsellor who will see you on a regular basis, for as long as necessary for your particular needs.

You will be offered weekly counselling sessions of 50 minutes, ideally at the same time and day each week. We normally ask you to agree to six sessions to begin with.
