Is it for me?
Here to help you! CCC is a charity dedicated to removing the barriers to counselling by supporting everyone in the local community with face to face counselling sessions at affordable prices for all.
CCC offers ANYONE 16 and over, of any gender, background, lifestyle and nationality, a confidential and caring environment in which to explore their needs. Counselling offers you the opportunity to be listened to and to explore how past events or current circumstances or thoughts about the future may be affecting your life.
The counsellor will not tell you what you should do, but will work with you to help you to find your own solutions This may enable you to make positive changes and could be the turning point to leading a fuller and happier life.
What does counselling help with?
People often seek counselling when they are feeling depressed, isolated or have other difficulties.
For instance, when they experience:
- relationship problems
- career or work life balance challenges
- bereavement and other losses
- feeling lonely and unheard
- feeling depressed
- a lack of confidence
Counselling can help with all of these
How do I know what makes a good counsellor?
If you don't use a CCC counsellor, always ensure that your counsellor is qualified with a recognised professional body. Look for accreditation with either CCC, BACP, UKCP or equivalent to ensure that they are fully qualified and have the appropriate experience. Try to get a personal recommedation if you are at all unsure.
ALL CCC counsellors are fully qualified and experienced, work to a minimum of BACP standards and codes of ethics, and undertake extensive personal therapy, regular CPD and DBS checks, so you can be sure you are in safe hands.
The Counselling Process...
Contact us yourself . You will speak to a reception counsellor who will provide any information you need.

Peterborough 01733 553166
If you decide to proceed with CCC, the reception counsellor will take your telephone number and a CCC counsellor will contact you, usually within a few days to arrange an assessment session. Sessions are usually weekly thereafter.
The initial assessment lasts up to 90 minutes and takes place with an experienced counsellor. They will explore with you your needs and expectations from counselling, and ensure that CCC offers the best service for you.
On occasion, we will recommend that alternative agencies and counsellors are more suited to your needs. We will tell you, if we are not the best agency to help you. We will talk this through with you and if possible, provide alternatives.
Following the initial assessment, the counsellor will discuss with you the most appropriate service which may be either time-limited or open-ended counselling.
If you are not happy with your counsellor, simply call reception and ask for a different one.
In some circumstances, the number of counselling sessions will be determined by what you can afford.
