Addressing Life’s Challenges
There are times when we all need a little help. We are primarily a voluntary organisation, serving the local community. Westmeria Counselling was established in 2003 to help people in need of support, with a particular emphasis on those suffering from depression. It is our aim to reverse the trend of reliance on anti-depressants.
We are a small organisation who rely on lots of help from everyone to keep going and if you would like to help us, please go on to our donations page to see how you could do that. We are based in Bickley and our counselling team takes on clients from a wide range of surrounding areas including Bromley, Penge, Beckenham, Chislehurst, Mottingham, and Petts Wood. Each session lasts for 50 minutes.
We are a longer term agency with an upper limit of 24 sessions after your initial appointment. We offer a unique service, requiring no set fee from our clients for counselling sessions provided. We do however, like to encourage clients to donate a little something towards their sessions – viewing this as a valuable commitment.
The key is that our service is both affordable and accessible. We receive no funding whatsoever from the local PCT, or government, so client donations provide an opportunity to go on to help others. We gained charity status in September 2005 which has helped enormously by allowing us to start to fundraise.
Westmeria counselling service has already helped over 4000 people since starting out and we plan to help many more people in the future.
