Welcome to ACPS

Avon Counselling and Psychotherapy Service is a small, well-established charity. We have been offering professional psychotherapy and counselling for over 30 years in Bristol, Bath and the South West.

ACPS believes in making therapy widely accessible. To this end, we are involved in fund-raising and aim to continue to offer a reduced fee to those on benefits (and to raise money to support therapy for people on a low income).

Low Fee Therapy

Our aim is to offer low-fee therapy whenever funding allows. However at the moment we do not have any low-fee places remaining. Our full-fee service is running as normal. Please check back here regularly for updates on availability low-fee therapy. In the meantime, the following local organisations may be able to help:

For women: Womankind
Network Counselling
In cases of sexual abuse: Kinergy
