About Footsteps Counselling and Care

Footsteps Counselling & Care is a charitable organisation offering compassionate counselling and care for anyone in the Gloucestershire area affected by pregnancy-related issues, the loss of a baby for any reason, traumatic birth, fertility problems and pregnancy-related mental health issues. Our vision is that anyone affected by fertility or pregnancy-related issues, traumatic birth or baby loss can access compassionate personalised support on the journey of coping with their traumatic experiences. We provide professional counselling virtually or in person, a website with an online support hub and a charity shop in Gloucester city centre. We could not do what we do without our tremendous volunteer force and the many hours they dedicate to us. There are many ways to get involved, from offering professional counselling to lending a hand in our charity shop, supporting our fundraising and events or helping behind the scenes and from home. People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. It is a great way to meet new people and have fun too!
