Listening Ear provides a BACP Accredited Counselling service for adults living in Knowsley, or for those registered with a Knowsley GP who are experiencing: bereavement, loss, anxiety, depression, isolation, or other mild to moderate mental health issues. Please be aware that we are only able to process bereavement counselling referrals for individuals at three months post-bereavement.

Counselling consists of a telephone or face-to-face assessment followed by a psycho-educational group. These are on subjects such as 'managing anxiety and depression' or 'coping with bereavement'. Groups run for two hours per week for four to six weeks.

In some instances, where appropriate, we offer 1:1 counselling, consisting of a telephone or face-to-face assessment followed by seven, fifty minute, 1:1 counselling sessions. These are usually held weekly at a regular time.
