About Us

Liber8 Counselling Services Ltd 01942 514 037

The service is for people aged 16 years, and above with no upper age limit. Our aim is to offer a supportive confidential non-judgmental therapeutic relationship to those in distress, or just need someone to talk too. However, we also offer Tactile Sensory Counselling which is a specialist resource to promote effective communication with people who have profound and complex learning disabilities aged from 5 years and above.   
 
All of our counsellors are professionally qualified or are in their final year of training, and are members of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). The counsellors maintain professional indemnity insurance, and have been CRB checked.                    

Liber8 expects the best from our team of counsellors so we treat professional development seriously. All our counsellors participate in regular (CPT) Continual Professional Development training, work to the BACP Ethical Framework guidelines, have regular supervision from external independent practitioners, and benefit from peer supervision.

Our counselling experience includes colleges, mental health organisations, well women centre, abuse; physical and emotional, substance misuse,  obsessive compulsive conditions (OCD), bereavement and loss, anger,  passivity, anxiety, depression, esteem issues, couples counseling; relationship issues, parenting problems, families in distress, phobia cures, gay clients, suicidal and self-harming clients.

We currently have 3 full-time qualified counsellors, 1 part-time qualified counselor, and 1 carefully selected student. We are usually able to offer a choice of male or female counsellor.
 
Liber8 Counselling Services Ltd is a not for profit organisation. The counsellors visit people in their own home or by appointment at various locations close to their home or work place in all the ten boroughs of greater Manchester.
 
We are able to offer counselling in English, Shona, Ndebele, Zulu, Swahili, and British Sign Language.
 
We have experience of taking referrals from other services, we are also able to offer a translating service to other organisations such as courts, police stations, benefit agencies etc that request this service.

Appointments can usually be offered at very short notice, or within 1 week.

Appointments are for a 50 minute session

We believe that counselling should be available to as many people as possible and therefore offer a number of sessions at a reduced rate. Please telephone  01942 514 037 for information on concessional rates.

All counselling fees are payable on the day. A block of six sessions can be paid in advance with a reduction of 10% being given. No refund is given if the sessions are not taken.The period of treatment can be as little as 1 session or open-ended, but, in most cases approximately 6 – 12 weeks is usually sufficient as this does not encourage needless long term dependency on the therapist.

We offer flexible appointments.

Concessions are available subject to individual circumstances..

Please contact us for details about our fees, or for information about our services.
