Hampstead Counselling ServiceJulia Paton
HCS is a local charity which offers low fee counselling and aims to be accessible to anyone who would benefit from counselling. Client and counsellor agree a fee which the client can afford, as it is a founding principle of HCS to help anyone regardless of financial or personal circumstances. HCS clients come from a wide variety of backgrounds, but mainly live or work in NW London .
A significant number of referrals come from GPS and other health practitioners, in these days of long waiting lists for NHS Counselling .
People may also self refer when struggling with difficulties such as relationship and family problems, depression, stress and anxiety and bereavement both in the past and recently.
All HCS counsellors are well qualified and experienced and supported by HCS supervision and administration. The counsellors themselves come from diverse backgrounds. HCS supports a team of around ten counsellors on whose generosity and commitment HCS depends.
HCS was founded in 1988, since then it has received steady and much appreciated support from individual parishioners and HPC in different ways as founders, counsellors, trustees, the administrator and fundraising .
