About Our Counselling Service

Trinity in Winchester has been providing counselling since 2009. We are a charitable organisation, which means we do not ask for a weekly session fee.

At Trinity, we are dedicated to your empowerment and giving you back the feeling of being in control of your life. We are passionate about enabling you to be the best version of yourself. We believe in potential and possibility.

Our counselling service offers 12-18 sessions of one-to-one talk-therapy in a safe and non-judgmental space, alongside our qualified counsellors. We are an inclusive service and do not discriminate; we offer our support to those who are in need.

Our counselling approach is Humanistic, which recognises an individual’s strengths and potential to create change in their lives. During your therapy, you will become more self-aware and begin to understand why you may be struggling with low mood, anxiety or behaviors which may be unhealthy or unproductive. You may begin to see patterns and cycles of responding which are no longer helpful. You may use the space to talk through difficult events in your life and begin to feel a sense of relief at being seen and heard.

Our roots are in supporting and empowering women who have experienced domestic violence; we understand the significance of the associated trauma and how this may destabilise your life and the choices you make. We are dedicated to providing services which aim to recognise the impact of these experiences. Our hope is to work alongside as you develop your own coping ‘tool-box’, creating new reserves and resilience to move forward in your life.

Professional standards

We adhere to the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) Ethical Framework.

You all provide a wonderful service. Please don’t forget that every day you come to work, you make a difference to someone’s life. You have definitely made a difference to mine.
