  • The Minster Centre Psychotherapy & Counselling Service (MCPCS)

    We all face difficulties in our lives at some time. These difficulties can be in response to life events such as bereavement, problems at work or even the loss of a job.

    Difficult feelings can accumulate and impact negatively on our relationships or family life. In response we can feel lonely, anxious or depressed, leading to low self-esteem and a sense of helplessness. Therapy can help.

    The Minster Centre offers a low-cost counselling and psychotherapy service for adults suffering from a variety of emotional difficulties. Fees are based on ability to pay.
