The Log Cabin Counselling Service
Update 01.04.2020 - Currently we are not able to take any new referrals. Our current clients using the service will be contacted individually.
As you are aware the current situation regarding COVID 19 is having an impact throughout society and unfortunately for us it comes at a time when we have also not been able to secure funding to currently keep the Counselling service running.
It is with great sadness that I write to inform you that the Log Cabin Counselling service will cease with immediate effect for the foreseeable future.
We will not be accepting any new referrals, current referrals on our waiting list will be contacted to see if we can assist with sign posting or referring on to other services or back to the GP.
Thank you for considering The Log Cabin Counselling service when referring Young people or Parents and Carers of the families you support. If circumstances change and we are able to offer counselling at a later date we will write to inform you.

What is counselling?
It is somewhere you can think and talk about your worries with a counsellor in a safe and confidential place. You can see a counsellor for lots of different reasons including:
- Suicidal thoughts or feelings
- Relationship Issues
- Family problems
What can counselling offer me?
- A space to clear my head
- A place to come and talk about my thoughts and feelings
- A place to talk about my choices
Our confidential counselling service is here to help through difficult times. We help people from all walks of life and offer supportive service, giving you the opportunity for change.
Counselling provides a space to talk about whatever you need, to share thoughts, and to explore sometimes difficult feelings in a safe environment. The Counsellor will be alongside to help you develop a greater understanding of your thoughts, feelings and their meanings, confidentially and without judgement.
All of our counsellors follow the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) Ethical Framework.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and the counsellor will get in contact with you.

The content of all sessions is completely confidential.
What are these?
The Youth Counselling Service (11-25yrs) offers a weekly Drop-in Session during term times. This is an alternative way of accessing the service and offers the opportunity to have a brief discussion about the nature of any problems or issues that are causing you concern.
Drop-in sessions last for 30 minutes, and are available on Saturdays between 11am and 1.30pm. These sessions are filled on a first come basis. Sessions are booked on the day.
What happens at these sessions?
You will be offered a 30 minute session with a counsellor where you can talk about your difficulties and look at possible ways forward.
If you feel at the end of your session you would benefit from additional counselling this can be discussed at the end of session.
The session can also be used to help if you are not sure if you would benefit from a regular counselling appointment, but would like to see if you might benefit from an initial discussion of your issues.
When do these take place?
Drop-in sessions are available to young people on a Saturday at the following times:
11am, 11.40am, 12.20pm and 1pm
