In order to access counselling, you don’t need to have any specific needs, nothing is too large or too small.

‘I have struggled with stress and anxiety for years. Coming for counselling has enabled me to get these worries under control, before it gets worse and escalates where I feel like I’m breaking down.’  Counselling Client at YMCA Brighton
