Since the successful introduction of remote counselling support in 2020, we now also offer a separate stream of long-term counselling, delivered entirely online or via the telephone. This may be a useful option if you face barriers to travelling into the City, are unable to leave your home, have parent or caring responsibilities that prevent you from attending alone, or if you need your counselling support to fit around a busy schedule. Remote counselling will be provided on the basis of a minimum contribution of £10 per session, offered for up to one year and available via telephone or Zoom.
We offer private counselling, which complements the core work of The Leicester Counselling Centre. If you want to be seen more quickly than our waiting list will allow please contact us for a list of our private counsellors and their hourly rates. Private counselling takes place at the Leicester Counselling Centre (when Covid restrictions are lifted) but the arrangement is independent of the core work of the Centre and you will need to contact the private counsellor yourself to discuss your needs and to make ongoing arrangements.
Employee Assistance Programme
The Employee Assistance Programme is intended to help employees deal with personal problems and work-related issues that might adversely impact on their work performance, health, and well-being. EAPs generally include assessment and short-term counselling of 6-8 weeks. If you are an Employer and would like to access this facility for your staff team, please contact the Director at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss available options. Please note, individuals cannot self refer to this service. Referrals are via employers only.
Leicestershire Police Federation Medical Scheme
The Leicester Counselling Centre is proud to be working alongside the Leicestershire Police Federation to offer emotional support to active and retired police personnel, their partners, and dependents. Post-Traumatic Stress is becoming increasingly recognised to impact members of the Police Force, as well as work-place pressures and the challenges of achieving a healthy work-life balance. We provide a short-term, goal-orientated model of counselling, which aims to help professionals resolve personal and workplace issues that may be affecting them. Referral is via Leicestershire Police Federation only and is open to members of their Medical Scheme.
