The Low Cost Counselling Service is provided by Counselling for Social Change (CSC).  CSC is a Registered Charity and was created by people with a deep desire to provide emotional support that values the individual, and responds to each person and all of their uniquely interconnected ‘stuff’.

We’ve managed to pull together an amazing team of counsellors and supporters that understand not all problems can be fixed in six sessions. And if it takes 6 weeks or 26 weeks, we’re going to stick by you.

We don’t think counselling should be the preserve of the wealthy. We think mental health and personal growth are the right of everyone and we’re working to keep our service affordable, offering subsidised places where we can.

All of our counsellors work from the Person-Centred Approach.  Our service is mostly provided by volunteers.  The volunteers are all either fully qualified or are nearing completion of at least a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and receive regular ongoing support and supervision.

We offer:

  • Face to face counselling across Cornwall.
  • Phone Counselling
  • Online Counselling
  • Referral to appropriate services.

We Aim:

  • to be non-judgemental
  • to empower our clients
  • to treat everyone as individuals
  • to provide a service that is non-hierarchical
  • to respond to all queries within 24 hours.

Contact us for an initial appointment or for further information.

As well as volunteering their time to us, many of our counsellors work in Private Practice.  We will share links to their personal therapy pages where we have them:
