Refer Yourself

COVID19 Update

Following  the advice issued by the UK Government on March 16th in relation to COVID-19, we took the difficult decision to close our office space, cease all face to face counselling sessions, and move to operating a remote counselling service via video conferencing. 

This means that all clients already on the waiting list for counselling will be contacted and offered remote counselling. 

Unfortunately, due to the complexities and challenges facing us as we move to remote counselling, we are not able to accept new referrals for our general free counselling services at this time.   We understand there will be many people across Bradford who are in need of counselling support, so we are working hard to reopen our waiting list and provide counselling services as soon as possible. Please do keep checking back for updates as and when they happen. 

Please see our COVID Risk Assessment here

We are taking referrals for some of our other services:

  • Private Fee paying counselling – cost: £42 per session.  Please contact us directly 
  • COVID-19 Grief & Loss Project – we are currently not taking any new direct referrals at this time.  Please contact us for updates.  The Guideline at Mind in Bradford are still taking referrals for this project, and you can call them on 08001 884 884 


10 tips if you are worried about Coronavirus 


For 30 years Bradford Counselling Services has supported people throughout the Bradford District to access the counselling support they need by offering therapeutic services to help individuals explore and cope with a range of emotional issues.  


If something is troubling you, counselling can give you the time and space to think through and talk about how you are feeling and what might be happening to trigger those feelings.  We will support people to work through all sorts of issues, but some of the more common ones are:


Depression and/or Anxiety

Exploring relationships (individually)

Bereavement and Loss


Work related issues

Health related issues

Lack of confidence

Drug and alcohol misuse

Abusive relationships

Identity issues


We work with adults, young people and children from the age of 16 upwards, providing up to 12 sessions of counselling.   Our funded services provide free counselling to people who live in Bradford District.  If you are able to pay, we offer counselling through our Fast Track Service.  This service is also available to organisations that want to access counselling for their clients or staff.  


We are stronger when we are united Bradford Counselling Services is committed to providing accessible services and a work environment that is appropriate and responsive to the needs of Bradford’s diverse communities. See our Equality Statement
