About Gloucestershire Counselling Service
GCS first started in 1978 and became registered as a charity in 1984 with the aim to provide high quality, affordable counselling to the communities of Gloucestershire. At this time there was little provision of this nature outside of London, the small group of therapy professionals grew the service and later launched the training of counsellors so as to ensure an ongoing supply of professionally trained counsellors to the county.
GCS was founded to provide access to affordable counselling and training for all members of society within the county, regardless of background or circumstances. We recognise that discrimination operates consciously and unconsciously in our society, which means some people have greater access to opportunities than others.
Our core belief is that all people are treated with dignity and respect and we are creating an organisation where inequalities are challenged and we anticipate and respond positively to different needs and circumstances.
Here at GCS our mission is to improve the quality of life for the communities of Gloucestershire through Counselling and Counselling Skills Training. Our long term goal is to maintain our reputation for delivering a high quality and effective service, meeting local needs and to be the first choice for Counselling and Training Services in Gloucestershire and its surrounding areas.
