Western Counselling

Western Counselling is renowned for its structured and boundaried approach to inpatient detoxification and rehabilitation.

Established in 1983 we have evolved the treatment programme to include a range of psycho-social interventions including educational workshops, health and wellbeing, social and life skills, family programmes, offender management and alternative therapies – yoga, reiki, laughter and art therapy, in addition to group and 1:1 counselling sessions.

Our detoxification programme has outstanding outcomes with 96% completing withdrawal in 2017.

The service is registered to take clients from age 17yrs accommodated in single sex accommodations approximately a 5minute walk from the day centre. The majority of rooms are twin bedded. The houses are staffed 24/7.

We partner with Gemini in a pilot project to deliver treatment to victims of domestic abuse - this service has been rated as “Outstanding” by CQC along with our work with money management as part of relapse prevention.

Western Counselling gives its clients the best possible opportunity to attain abstinence and maintain and sustain long term recovery.
