Counselling Courses and Resources

Resources for Clergy during Covid-19 and into the Future

The Counselling Service is not only for those in need of on-going therapy. Current pressures in ministry are such that it is important to find safe places to unburden. If you are unable to do this with a colleague or friend, you are welcome to contact the service for a ‘reflective space’ where you can think about what is happening in your work and role as a priest, which may feel it has altered profoundly, either as a one off conversation or as a place to check in on an ad hoc basis as and when you feel the need.
