Hello and welcome to The Listening Post, We are a not for profit counselling agency based in Laindon Essex.

We believe everybody is unique and individual, as such a one size fits all approach does not work. we work from an integrative approach, tailored to work with your needs.
This enables you to gain the most out of counselling and achieve what you want to achieve.

We offer a relaxed atmosphere where you will be able to examine your thoughts and feelings without being judged and where we will help you to find your own way at your own pace.

We can offer both short and long term counselling, with regular reviews to ensure you are gaining what you want from counselling.

We offer an initial session, lasting 35 minutes. this includes discussing your needs, expectations of counselling and how best we could work together. with no obligation to continue. This is £10
Each session is 50 minutes (therapeutic session) and ideally weekly but can work around other commitments.
Due to being a not for profit agency, we access some funding to enable counselling to be accessible for everyone.
We use a sliding scale, the lower your income, the lower the costs to you. Our sessions range from £10 -£40

Their centre was very close to me I felt comfortable when I walked in. The rates were very good but mostly it's because I felt comfortable and opened up immediately.

The Listening Post C.I.C Q&A

The Listening Post C.I.C Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

Our counsellors have joined us because they love what they do, they feel it is a calling. The best part of the job is seeing the different people and being given the privilege to walk alongside them while they are on their own road to what they want to change or where they want to be.
Knowing by giving someone the space to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions, and truly listening without judging them, a person is able to make those changes.

What inspired you to start your own business?

We started our agency because we feel that many more people would like to access counselling but do to one reason or another, they feel they couldn't.
Our aim is enable counselling is accessible to everyone regardless of issue, gender, sexuality, finance or background. We want to raise awareness of mental health and feel it is as important as physical health.

Why should our clients choose you?

We feel we offer counselling that is client lead, from our approach ( integrative approach), ensuring each counsellor has varied past experience working with different issues, to our sliding scale ( making counselling accessible to all)
