Counselling for Adults

Counselling support

Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, loss or bereavement, work related stress or a range of other emotions impacting on your day-to-day life?

It may seem hard to reach out for support, but it’s important to remember that it’s okay to ask for help and you deserve to get the support you need.

Counselling allows you the opportunity to talk about issues affecting your life in a safe and confidential environment. It can help you to explore your thoughts and feelings in order to change behaviours and achieve your goals. This can lead to positive change with increased self-confidence, self-esteem and the ability to face the future.

There are two ways to access counselling through Hull and East Yorkshire Mind:

Standard Service: Our standard counselling service is free for individuals aged 18 and above registered with a GP in Hull. This service is provided in collaboration with NHS Hull Talking Therapies and may have a waiting list due to its high demand. For East Riding, you will need to contact NHS East Riding Talking Therapies.

Private Counselling: This service is exclusively provided by Hull and East Yorkshire Mind for adults from all areas. Our goal is to connect you with a skilled and experienced counsellor within seven days so you can begin your counselling journey at a time convenient to you.

We appreciate that taking the first step to accessing counselling can feel difficult, and we want to make that step as easy as possible for you. For more information, please complete the ‘Get in touch’ form opposite.

This has been just what I needed. The care, listening, perception, tools, skills etc have helped me no end. It has helped to know that there was someone here for me and helping me on my mental health journey.


Thank you so much for all the care, practical tools and resources that have helped my recovery immensely over the last couple of months.


My counsellor was very reassuring. I finally felt understood and listened to.
