Private sessions with Care To Listen counsellors

Arranging private counselling sessions with one of our qualified and experienced counsellors is the right choice for many people.

Private sessions can give you more choice about who you see and when you see them. Many of our counsellors work in their own private practices as well as Care To Listen, and they are able to offer a wide range of counselling models.

Private sessions are suitable for clients wanting to work short-term on a problem that is currently troubling them, or longer-term to explore deeper issues

Private counselling sessions are available at Ashburton Road on weekdays from 9am until 8pm, and on Saturdays from 10am until 4pm.

Some counsellors may be able to offer sessions at other locations outside these times.

Our counsellors are able to work with individuals, couples, children and families.  They offer face-to-face sessions, and some offer telephone counselling.
