Private Counselling

About our service

Rotherham and Barnsley Mind offers funded counselling support through our Adult 1-2-1 service.

We offer up to 6 sessions and each one lasts around 50 minutes. These are usually held weekly, either in-person at our premises in Rotherham and Barnsley, or online.

About our service

Our private therapy is a chargeable service delivered by our fully qualified and experienced therapists.

We can support you by providing a safe space where you can talk and reflect.

How can this help me?

A counsellor will be matched with you after an assessment has been carried out.

  • Your counsellor will listen to you non-judgmentally and will support you to learn more about your feelings and emotions.
  • They can help you in identifying strategies and tools to improve your overall mental health.
  • Your referral will be screened by one of our clinical assessors and you will be allocated accordingly to one of our trainee or volunteer counsellors based upon your current presenting needs.
  • All our trainee volunteer counsellors work within the BACP Framework for Counselling Professions (2018) and are DBS checked. They are also required and committed to attend regular supervision provided by the clinical team at Rotherham and Barnsley Mind.
