The counselling offered is founded on, and adheres to, Christian principles and is open to people of any faith or no faith. Counsellors operate within the code of ethics and standards of practice of The Association of Christian Counsellors.
|Counselling Appointments||Clients are normally seen at Bromham Baptist Church by appointment, which can be arranged either by telephone or in person at Bromham Baptist Church (see contact details below). An initial assessment interview is arranged with the counselling co-ordinator to discuss the requirements of each person. Clients may be referred to other agencies if this is considered in their best interests. A counselling contract is made initially for six sessions, at which time a review is made and additional sessions arranged if appropriate. Sessions last for approximately one hour.
All counsellors are supervised by an independent supervisor and are accountable to the leadership of Bromham Baptist Church.
A registration fee of £10 is required. Donations are welcome towards administration costs.
