WPH Counselling is a professional charity offering a range of free and confidential counselling services. From the outset WPH Counselling wanted to establish a caring and welcoming place where people could find compassionate care, reliable information and emotional support in times of crisis and concern. Whilst you will be helped by professional staff, WPH has worked, since it started in 1992, to maintain the core values of respect, unconditional positive regard, care and compassion for all people wishing to make use of the services on offer.
At WPH you will never be pressurised into something you don't want to do. We are here to help and support you in finding your own answers. We offer time and space for you to be helped to explore all options and choices at your own pace. We will respect your confidentiality and the choices you make to the best of our abilities, offering you clear factual information and support through whatever difficulty or concern you currently face.
The organisation is committed to providing you with free counselling services and to respect your social, cultural, ethnic, religious, and or sexual background or orientation. WPH does not support any political party or campaigns, such as pro-life or pro-choice groups. Counsellors and staff are there to respect and value your viewpoint at all times.
The organisation has the status of a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited service and is bound by their "Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy". All counsellors working at WPH must abide by an approved code of ethics, follow policy and procedures and have been trained to at least Diploma level. Despite our counsellors having many years of practical experience all counsellors must attend regular sessions with an independent counselling supervisor. This ensures your counsellor is endeavouring to do the very best for you. Confidentiality is maintained at all times.
It is our aim and endeavour that you will find the same caring and compassionate support from WPH today as we have always sought to offer to anyone who contacts us for help.
