ACPS was founded in 1988 to provide a professional service to the community. We are a non profit making organisation, based in Orchard Street in central Bristol, just behind the Hippodrome Theatre.
We are used by individuals from all sections of the community, and are registered as a charity to make available, when possible, counselling and psychotherapy to those who might otherwise be denied treatment for financial reasons. ACPS is a very cost effective organisation. Almost all funds go directly to meeting the costs of therapy sessions for those who are unemployed or on a very low income.
There are a number of ways in which you may be able to support our work:
Become a Friend of ACPS, Take part in a sponsored event, Leave a legacy in your will, Make a one-off donation
As well as taking self-referrals, ACPS is known to G.P.’ s, statutory services and voluntary agencies. ACPS is also in a position to offer employee counselling for businesses and organisations. Please contact us for further details of short-term contract schemes.
