Who are we? 

Dove is a charitable organisation providing face-to-face counselling based on Biblical principles.

- an opportunity to have an honest look at your life in a supported environment 

 

 

 

Who is it for?

Individuals, couples and families experiencing a range of problems and difficulties.

 

 Who does it help?  

We deal with most problems and issues and the following list is an example of some of the things that people seek help with. The list is not exhaustive and therefore please don't hesitate to contact us if your problem is not mentioned here. 

- depression and anxiety

- sexual issues

- addiction

- marital problems

- eating disorders

- spiritual issues

- abuse in its various forms

 

 How does it work?  

We operate with a waiting list most of the time so when you contact us, we will take your details and put you on the list.  When you are next on the list a counsellor will contact you and arrange for you to come in for an assessment appointment.  This appointment allows the counsellor to evaluate your needs and assess if he or she can help.  It also allows you to get to know the counsellor and the service and decide if you wish to continue to come for counselling.  If counselling is proceeding you will receive an information pack which includes a statement of agreement between you and your counsellor.  you will then be given your next appointment date and time.

 

 

Counselliing days and times

At the moment our counselling days are Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Counselling appointment times are 9.45am; 11.30am; 2.00pm and 3.30pm.

 

 What happens next?  

You will normally see your counsellor in regular fortnightly sessions of around one hour.

 

 What is the cost?  

There is no fixed charge for counselling but contributions are welcomed.  No-one will be refused counselling for lack of money.

 

 How are we financed?  

We are dependent upon the financial support of individuals and trusts.  This support really does make a difference to people's lives.  If you would like to support our work financially we would love to hear from you.  We also welcome ongoing financial support from friends and former clients.  Your contribution helps us to provide counselling for those who are unable to contribute due to circumstances.
