Counselling Services

Community Counselling

Torfaen & Blaenau Gwent Mind has been providing counselling for over 17 years and now offers a Private Counselling Service to compliment its community based service.

The community service is coordinated by a qualified counsellor who manages the service and supports all the counsellors. There are a number of both qualified and student counsellors working towards their diploma providing counselling (Student placements are currently on hold). This is a free of charge service but we do appreciate donations from those that can afford it. These donations to date have enabled us to continue to provide this much need service to the community.

To access this service just call us on 01495 768840 and ask for the Community Counselling team who will arrange an initial assessment. Once the initial assessment is carried out you will be placed on the list and given an idea of the waiting time to be seen for counselling.


Private Counselling

This service is completely private and confidential and all Private Counselling is carried out by qualified counsellors.

You will have a choice of a Male or Female counsellor and can be seen within 2 weeks! No more 6-12 month waiting list!

Due to the diversity of our Counsellors you will benefit from a number of therapies which best meet your needs.

These include:

  • Person Centred,
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy,
  • Solution Focused,
  • Human Givens

So if you think you or someone you know  could benefit from counselling and want more information, call us on 01495 707360 or email

Sessions cost £45 per hour
