Guernsey Counselling Service is an independent charity that provides accessible and professional counselling and counselling training.
Our aim is to bring hope to all those in the community who are going through a difficult time, to enable them to appreciate their value as an individual and a person of worth, to take responsibility for their own lives and to reach their full potential.
Our goal is to make professional counselling support accessible to all who need it in Guernsey, whatever their social circumstances or financial means.
GCS furthers its aim and goal by:
- Offering counselling to all those who request it, at a cost that is within their means
- Observing a recognised strong ethical framework in the provision of that counselling
- Facilitating and supporting on-island professional and accredited training for those who wish to become qualified professional counsellors
GCS has an open referral system, which means the client may refer themselves or be referred by other professional services, such as the GP, Mental Health Services, Family Proceedings Advisory Service, Probation and Social Services.
Initial contact is through the dedicated mobile telephone number or by email using the contact form on the website.
Guernsey Counselling Service offers general counselling services across a wide spectrum of needs including:
Stress at work or due to life events
Breakdowns in Relationships
Due to demand for the service there is a waiting list in operation.
