Our counsellors are professionally trained and supervised and practice within the ethical framework of the BACP.

Basingstoke Counselling Service is a training organisation and therefore some counselling will be provided by supervised trainees.

Basingstoke Counselling Service is a non-profit making organisation. We receive no direct funding and are sustained by donations from clients and other fundraising activities. This enables us to benefit from Gift Aid.

Gift Aid

If you come to us as a client and are a U.K. tax payer, please consider signing a simple Gift Aid declaration, enabling us to reclaim 20% tax on your donation from HMRC.  It won’t cost you any more and benefits us.  Your counsellor can help you with this.
