Children, Young People and Adults

We have a team of 28 integratively-trained counsellors including counsellors that speak different languages providing for clients from different ethnic backgrounds.

Adult Counselling is currently available for a donation of £5 per session.

Meanwhile, our youth counselling service continues to provide one-to-one creative therapies for children and young people aged between 7-18 years of age for free.

Adults, children and young people can self-refer.

All counselling is confidential to the organisation, and where necessary to our partners.

Mindful Counselling Service

Mindful Counselling is an established private service set up by Basildon Mind and adheres to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Code of Ethics and Practice. All counsellors are fully qualified to a minimum of Diploma level.

Counselling sessions last between 50 minutes and one hour and are charged at £40 per session. Clients are seen by the same counsellor at each weekly session and continue for as long as both feel it is useful.

Counselling appointments can be offered outside of normal office hours.

If you feel one of our counselling services could be of benefit to you or for further confidential information, please contact us on:
