Professional Therapy for Children, Young People or Adults

The ACC offers award winning counselling and therapy in a wide range of styles including person-centred, integrative counselling, CBT, mindfulness to our more creative arts therapies including dramatherapy, art therapy, play therapy and dance and movement therapy.

Sessions last typically 50 minutes to one hour and usually takes place once a week at a time agreeable for you, your child/ren or family. We offer daytime, evening and weekend support as well as telephone, home and video-distance counselling and therapy support.

All people from all backgrounds go through some form of emotional, psychological or social disturbance during their life time and it may come in the form of family break up; parents separating, loss, bereavement, anger, depression, anxiety, stress, loss of self-confidence, abuse and more.

ACC helps all of these issues and much more. We have several trained and registered therapists and counsellors, so our waiting times is much shorter than if you went through your GP or NHS as their waiting times can take up to several months before you would get any support. At the ACC our typical waiting times are typically no more than two to three weeks.

ACC listens to your needs and will always strive to help.
