Our Counsellors

Our Counsellors are fully trained professionals. We do sometimes have part-qualified Counsellors who are in training.

Opening Times

Counselling is available Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 10.00pm at the Centre.


HCC provides a confidential setting. You are free to talk safely, without fear or rejection, criticism or blame. No information will be disclosed to anyone outside HCC without the client’s written permission, except under certain rare legal circumstances (e.g. Child Protection).

Good practice

All our Counsellors work to professional Codes of Ethics and Practice. Copies of these codes and our complaint procedures are available on request. We have an Access to Records policy and comply with the Data Protection Act. We are committed to an intercultural approach and to equal opportunity. HCC is a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy. 

Sometimes we are unable to help

People who are dependent on drugs or alcohol sometimes approach us. Since we are not a specialist addiction agency, we ask clients to seek specialist help for addiction before contacting HCC.

Equal Opportunities

HCC is committed to an Equal Opportunities Policy in all aspects of counselling.  We welcome everyone without discrimination of race, religion, physical disability, gender, marital status of sexual orientation.
