Low-Cost Counselling

Counselling provides a space for people to explore what is happening in their lives, and to work through their experiences in a safe, private and confidential environment. Counsellors will be accepting and understanding allowing you the freedom to explore and reflect on what’s right for you.

Psychoeducational Groups

At As You Are we run various psychoeducational groups aimed at offering tailored and specific support. We are typically reliant on funding to be able to deliver these groups. Groupwork we have offered in the past include: 
– Understanding Your Anger
– Naming My Needs
– Emotional Resilience
– Peer Support for People with Eating Disorders 

Volunteer Placements

As a community-based organisation, volunteers are an essential part of As You Are, without whom we would not be able to provide our services. We are very grateful for all who choose to donate their time to As You Are.
