How Willows can support you

The coronavirus pandemic has increased demand for our services. More people are now turning to us for help. We need your help to meet this growing demand, so that we can offer more support, to more people and more often.

“Without Willows Counselling I don’t think I would still be here. They really helped me to understand that I am not responsible for everyone.”

Willows provides a safe, caring and confidential place for adults to find a way through emotional challenges and to rebalance. Each year more than 300 people contact us for support and we carefully match them with a Counsellor who is professionally trained and passionate about supporting others. Each week we deliver nearly 60 one-to-one counselling sessions and each session costs Willows £50.

We do not receive any statutory funding.  Everybody’s contribution and support is equally valued and welcomed by us.

A full report of our accounts is available at the Charity Commission
