Low self esteem or depression can be rooted in physical health, social or economic problems. Disability, illness, bereavement or loss of employment can all trigger the need to seek help. The NHS/PCT no longer provide any counselling service in the North and East of Hampshire, and it falls to the third sector to address these needs.


ACS wants to increase the provision in North East Hampshire of counselling and therapy to a highly professional standard at a cost that is affordable to clients and with the tenet that nobody be denied access to its service solely for financial reasons. We also want to make our services more accessible and well known to the public, so that people more readily approach us directly and are not just referred by GPs or other agencies.
