Counselling Service

What does it do?

The Wimbledon Guild Counselling Service (WGCS) commenced in 1990 and provides an essential service to the community. Its aim is to provide low cost, easily accessible counselling for those in need of support.

Many of the counsellors are qualified or are in their last years of training. All of them are experienced and are regularly supervised by experienced supervisors.

The service is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

The reason for client consultations varies but includes:
• stress
• problems in relationships
• anxiety
• depression
• work related problems

• After the assessment, you will be placed on a waiting list to see a counsellor regularly, for up to forty weeks.

• If there is any reason we feel that we are not an appropriate service for you we will write to inform you and as far as possible suggest a more appropriate service.
