Counselling and Psychotherapy

Marches Counselling Service (MCS) offer a professional and confidential service, helping people based in Herefordshire who are experiencing distress. 

MCS was founded to make to make counselling and psychotherapy accessible to all. Including the opportunity for long-term therapy work where needed. 

Our clients pay for the therapies we provide, however, as a not-for-profit service we make every effort to ensure that this is affordable. Client contributions help us sustain our service.  


How it works

An initial assessment enables a deeper consideration of our client’s situation where we discuss possible ways forward which will meet their needs, and match clients to an appropriate counsellor. 

The assessment and subsequent therapy sessions can take place in person or online.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more.

How counselling can help

Counselling is an opportunity to work with someone you can trust. Together our client and counsellor look at how the client  reached their present situation, what it means for them, and what the client might want to change. It can take many directions.  


To find different and sometimes new ways of coping


To help understand yourself and your relationships better


To gain support to make changes in your life


To help get back on track or gain a fresh sense of direction


To sort things out while taking medication or as an alternative to it

Individual Therapy

To help you feel more comfortable in your own skin.

It was life changing for me. Things I had taken for granted in myself, about the world were challenged, but gently, so I became much more confident
