What is Cogwheel and how can we help you?
Cogwheel Counselling is a Cambridge-based registered charity that provides counselling services in Cambridgeshire to individuals of all ages: children, teenagers, young adults, adults and the elderly. The service includes supported affordable provision for those on lower and limited incomes.
Cogwheel also offers organisations who wish to support their staff struggling with emotional wellbeing issues the option of registering with our Employee Counselling Service (ECS) for their employees to receive a course of counselling sessions fully funded by their organisation.
Established in 1988 as The Cogwheel Trust, we’re one of the few counselling services in Cambridgeshire accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Counselling is best described as a meeting between two people, client and counsellor, that takes place each week so you can talk about whatever problem, difficulty or issue is adversely affecting your life.
We are here to support people who are struggling. We can help with worry, stress, burnout, depression, family or relationship problems and other mental health issues you are experiencing.
Some people come in great distress, whilst others seek help with difficult emotions or want help to change their unhelpful patterns of behaviour. Early counselling intervention can, in many cases, prevent more complex health and social needs from developing.
It can be difficult to take the first step and many people feel somewhat hesitant, but seeking help is a very positive thing to do and we are here to offer support.
In our most recent survey, 46% of clients indicated that they were severely or moderately severely distressed at the start of counselling, which reduced to only 12% of clients by the end of their counselling.
