Our Counsellors

At All Saints Counselling Service, we have a team of counsellors who offer a variety of therapeutic approaches. As well as working in the areas mentioned on our ‘How we can Help’ page, they also have different areas of counselling expertise and special interest, including working with addiction, with survivors of sexual abuse, refugees and asylum seekers, and those with learning difficulties.

Alongside their counselling training, they bring a wealth of collective professional experience to their counselling role: work in Social Services, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, Teaching and Youth Work.

Our counsellors receive regular, clinical supervision, as well as ongoing training as part of their Continuing Professional Development.

Director of the service, Andy Bridgen*, says: “I feel privileged to be representing ASCS as Director at this time as our wider community is really starting to embrace the place and value of talking therapies as a partner to medicine in the treatment of psychological distress.”
