About Our Help



  • What is counselling?

  • Counselling offers people a chance to talk through issues and problems that are having an impact on their life in a safe, neutral environment. Our counsellors will not make any assumptions or judgements about you as a person or about what you share with them. They believe that everyone has the resources within themselves to explore what is happening to them and to make changes if needed so our counsellors do not offer opinions, advice or guidance. Our experience has shown that people who are struggling to come to terms with a loss such as miscarriage or stillbirth have found that being able to talk about them in a safe space has helped them with the grieving process. Before starting counselling we ask new clients to come for an assessment which gives you an opportunity to find out more about Footsteps and how counselling might be of help."

    • Is there a waiting List?

    • We do have a waiting list. Due to the nature of our work it is hard to know how long the wait will be. If we put you on our list we will see you as soon as we possibly can and let you know roughly how long that wait will be.

    • How many counselling sessions can I have?

    • At this time we are able to offer you up to 12 counselling sessions.  This is to enable us to minimise the waiting time for our service.  Of course, you can come for less than 12 sessions, and should you find you need more than 12, your counsellor will explain what your options are.

    • How long does each session take?

    • Sessions last for approximately 50 minutes

    • What is the cost of our services?

    • Our counselling is free to those that need it, however, to help to cover our costs we ask that clients make a donation per session if they can. You can agree an amount with your counsellor. We never turn away anyone away if they are unable to make a donation. You can donate towards the cost of our service by giving cash or cheque to your counsellor each session, or by donating via PayPal HERE.  You can also find the link on our FACEBOOK PAGE.
