Low Cost Counselling

At The PGDC we offer affordable ways of accessing counselling and psychotherapy within the community through our low cost service, if you are on benefits or a low income.

Counselling can help you to deal with issues that are causing you distress or preventing you from living your life to its fullest. Our counsellors can help you to explore your difficulties so that you can move forward in a more positive way. Together, we can explore your concerns and help you to understand the root cause of your problem, which will enable you to become more self-aware, so that you can make informed choices and have more control of your decisions.

We work with adults on an individual basis and provide therapy for many issues, including:



Panic Attacks
