Counselling in Herefordshire

Our service is for adults over the age of 18. Our counsellors offer appointments throughout the week including outside of normal working hours.

Enquiries can be made via the staffed office between 10.00 and 13:00, Monday to Friday.

We have a purpose designed counselling suite in Hereford and use rooms in the market towns. Due to the restrictions associated with the coronavirus, we are now offering a hybrid service. This means that people can access online assessments and sessions as well as Covid safe face to face appoinments.

Our Vision

At Marches Counselling we offer a service which helps people explore and work with the dissatisfaction they feel, whether that be with themselves, their situation, or the society they move within. We hope that we can find ways of helping someone feel more comfortable ‘in their own skins’ and more able to engage with the environment in which they find themselves. This can be challenging when we need to question assumptions we make about ourselves and others, but it does open the possibility for lasting change, change which can help us create the world we wish to live in.

One to one counselling

This includes approaches where you focus with your counsellor or psychotherapist on coping techniques, as well as those which look more in depth at present or past patterns in your life and relationships.  The aim is to help you understand and deal with where you are now, so your relationship with the future can be different.

Group therapy

This is when a group of people who share some common difficulties come together with each other and a counsellor to consider where they are in their lives and think about ways forward:  sometimes using specific techniques like mindfulness, sometimes in a more open way.

Remote Therapy

Remote or online therapy includes counselling appointments over the phone or using audio-visual platforms such as Zoom. These have been introduced during the Covid pandemic to ensure one-to-one counselling can still continue when it hasn’t been safe to meet in person. They will continue for those for whom it is a preferred method, or in situations where illness or transport create difficulties in meeting in person.

Couples counselling

This allows two people to work together with a counsellor on their communication. It can help you understand one another better, change patterns in how you relate and find more satisfaction in being together.  This is not always about keeping the old relationship, but about finding a positive way to live differently.

Unique approaches

At MCS we believe that no one way forward is the ‘right’ way. We believe that each person is unique and this is why we offer different approaches with counsellors trained in different traditions. For each person it must be their own path which is trodden, whoever walks alongside. We can only be present on that journey for a while, helping recognise the difficulties, offering tools which may be useful, perhaps pointing out some of the dangers – but also the hidden treasures which these journeys can offer.
