CounsellingKernos provides counselling and support for people with psychological and emotional difficulties who need help in Sudbury, Cornard and the surrounding area.

Counselling can be made available to you either:

  • by a referral from your GP, psychiatrist, healthcare worker or an agency
  • at your own request.

After an initial assessment, one of our experienced professional counsellors, with specialist expertise in a number of therapy disciplines, will undertake regular, confidential, non-judgmental, 50-minute sessions, face-to-face with you in a safe location.

If you have the means to pay, you will be asked to meet the full cost of your sessions – otherwise you may just be asked for a part contribution or, in certain circumstances, the sessions will be provided free. In such cases the costs may be met by specific programme funding, charitable donations, or a combination of these.

If you are struggling to deal with emotional issues or problems that affect your everyday life, the opportunity to discuss and work through them with a trained counsellor can help you not only understand them, but also help deal with them.

You may have issues that just need a little assistance to help you get back on track – or you may have more serious problems that are having a disruptive impact on your well-being and ability to cope.

For example, are you:

  • caring for another adult?
  • suffering from low self-esteem?
  • depressed?
  • self-harming?
  • suffering work-related stress?
  • experiencing domestic abuse/violence?
  • suffering from anxiety?
  • having relationship difficulties?
  • grieving?
  • having eating problems?
  • suffering from substance abuse?

No problem is too small or too big – just ring for an assessment appointment.

Once you’re having treatment and there is no need to continue counselling if you decide that it’s not helping.
