- The Counselling Directory is a confidential service that encourages those in distress to seek help. The directory contains information on many different types of distress, as well as articles, news, and events. To ensure the professionalism of our website, all counsellors have provided us with qualifications and insurance cover or proof of membership with a professional body.
Below is a list of associations and groups which will be able to provide you with the relevant support for your circumstances. I would like to thank Melissa Cann for her permission to reproduce this list from http://counselling-directory.org.uk
