CHOICES are a team of qualified, experienced counsellors offering a professional and confidential service available to children, young people and adults. The counsellors are members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics, standards and disciplinary procedures.
Our counsellors have experience with all ages, working within Mainstream, Emotional Behavioural Difficulty (EBD) Schools, Pupil Referral Units and Social Service Establishments.
CHOICES constantly look to secure funding which may enable clients the opportunity to benefit from counselling free of charge, subject to the referral criteria. We are not part of the NHS; we are a Community Interest Company and rely on this funding to operate.
The service is currently available within the Tamworth area of Staffordshire.
