Petersfield Counselling Service aims to help adults who are experiencing difficulties and would like to talk with a counsellor.
Petersfield Counselling Service (PCS) is a professionally run independent and confidential counselling service. It was founded in 1987 as an initiative of the Churches and caring professions in Petersfield.
PCS is administered by a Trustee Board drawn from caring and other professions in the community who govern the Charity and provide professional guidance.
Counsellors have undertaken professional training to at least Diploma or Degree level. In addition, we offer placements to carefully selected students who are in the final stages of their professional training.
How can we help you?
Counselling is based on listening and helping people to find their own way forward.
For all of us there are times when we experience difficulties or problems which may be helped by counselling.
Emotional & Physical Abuse
Loss & Bereavement
Stress & Anxiety
How do I seek help?
Telephone or email our intake co-ordinator, leave a message and you will be contacted within a few working days.
An intake appointment will be arranged for you to meet with a counsellor to:
• identify why you are seeking counselling at this time.
• to see if PCS is best placed to support you, or if an alternative services would be more suitable.
If counselling with PCS seems the best way forward, you will be placed on a waiting list and be contacted by a counsellor when there is suitable availability. The counsellor will offer you a day and time for weekly counselling sessions which last 50 minutes.
The service is open to anyone, 18 or over, regardless of race, religion, gender or sexuality.
PCS is a charity and we rely on donations from the local community.
While noone will be refused help for financial reasons you will be asked, as part of your commitment, to make an affordable contribution depending on your financial circumstances.
