Adult Counselling Service

We are temporarily closed for new referrals.

About the Service 

If you would like to access counselling for yourself, you may qualify for counselling support through our Adult 1-2-1 service here at York Mind. We offer up to 16 sessions and each one lasts around 50 minutes. These are usually held weekly, either in-person at our premises at Highcliffe House (YO30 6BP), or online. 


How can this help me? 

A counsellor will be matched with you after an assessment has been carried out. Your counsellor will listen to you non-judgmentally and will support you to learn more about your feelings and emotions. They can help you in identifying strategies and tools to improve your overall mental health.
