We’re glad you’re here

Thanks to the generous support of The Big Give, between now and midday on Tuesday 28th May, any donation made to Basingstoke Counselling Service, via The Big Give platform (up to the value of £2,500), will be doubled! To avoid missing out on having the impact of your donation doubled, please click the DONATE TODAY button at the top of the page before the match-funding window runs out at midday on the 28th May. It can also be the case that the match pot runs out sooner than this, so we’d recommend donating without delay. All donations received will fund our campaign focusing on the silent killer of male suicide. Our aim is to break down as many barriers as possible for those men who may not otherwise access help through counselling by offering a free initial consultation, with the view to offering this to up to 100 men over a two-year period. More information on our campaign can be found by clicking here.

We are a mental health charity that provides affordable counselling, training and CPD in Basingstoke and the surrounding areas.

We put the emotional wellbeing of our community at our heart and believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. The services we offer reflect our goal to help our local community thrive – read more about our mission to improve mental health.

Please be aware that we are not a crisis service. In the event of requiring emergency support, such as a plan to hurt yourself or others, please call 999, Samaritans or present yourself at any of the A&E departments of your local hospitals.
