Counselling & Therapies

Counselling by disabled and able-bodied people

HAD’s Counselling Service was set up in 1991. 

We provide counselling either in the ‘quiet room’ at The Woodside Centre, in people’s homes or at a mutually convenient accessible location. We believe the healing process of counselling takes time, therefore we offer you an open ended connection with your counsellor. The service is free and we only ask for an affordable donation. To this end we have recently implemented a Counsellor/Client Agreement Contract.

The service is available to people with disabilities, family members and carers and is continually growing and evolving. In the last financial year we took on 18 new clients. We welcome new venues and counsellors and the need to keep up-to-date with the latest practices is paramount to us.

The Counselling Service is an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and we regularly attend relevant conferences and lectures.

Our Counselling team is now offering ongoing couple/relationship/family therapy to HAD clients or those coming through HBS.

So if you feel you would benefit from talking to us, please just pick up the phone knowing that it will be completely confidential and we will respect your privacy at all times.

For more information and to arrange for a councillor to contact you call DANIELLA BEDWELL on 01707 324581 or Email:


We offer a variety of therapies at The Woodside Centre. These include osteopathic consultations, assessments and treatments, acupuncture, nutritional therapy and foot care.
