Beacon Counselling

Set up 27 years ago, Beacon exists to improve the lives of adults, young people and children experiencing mental and emotional distress. Trained counsellors help people deal with a wide range of issues such as depression, bereavement and loss, relationships, family issues, anxiety, and low self-esteem.

Counselling is provided from 7 highly accessible locations in Stockport for adults; 10 secondary schools and 2 community locations for young people aged 11 to 18; and 7 primary schools, making access to our service easy for all. Beacon's monitoring and evaluation of feedback from people who have used the service tells us that most people benefit from the counselling Beacon provides, whatever the issue. The most common benefits are: increased confidence and self-esteem, improved relationships with others, reduced impact of problems in their lives, and feeling better able to cope with future challenges. Beacon takes pride in the quality of its services and was recognised for its long term contribution to the local area when given a Queen's Award for Voluntary Service in 2008.
