Affordable Therapy & Low Cost Counselling

Society used to look at mental health issues as something to be ashamed of, but we don’t have to any more. Mental health, like physical health, is something that absolutely everyone must work at to feel good. It’s rewarding work, but it isn’t always easy or affordable.

The counsellors at Welling Centre aim to build trusting, safe, relationships with you, where they can understand your situation from your perspective, and help you to discover the hidden resources that would allow you to find your source of wellness once again.
