    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.
