About Counselling | Redlands Counselling and Training

A friendly accessible Counselling service

Redlands provides in-house counselling training for our students through to Level 4 qualification and beyond. We are led by a team of dedicated and experienced professionals who are all members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or a similar professional association.

Our Community Counselling service

As part of their training, our students need to complete a number of counselling hours with real clients before they can qualify. We are proud to be able to offer our Community Counselling Service to those who might find it difficult to access counselling otherwise, and have maintained our fees at an affordable rate, whilst covering unavoidable costs.

Our Service

We provide a welcoming, safe environment in which counselling can take place, at our sites in Bournemouth and Dorchester. We can also provide online and telephone counselling. Clients are offered up to 12 weekly sessions. All our counsellors work to the Ethical Framework of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
