What is Confide?

Confide is a Shropshire based registered charity, currently operating in Shrewsbury and Telford. It was established over 25 years ago by a group of counsellors who believed in the importance of counselling and that it should be more widely available.

The services we offer have developed over time and now include Individual Counselling and Business Wellbeing Services for employers. We believe in actively promoting good mental health and so offer a preventative service - the Mental Wellbeing MOTWe have many years’ experience delivering NHS commissioned primary care counselling services for Health Professionals such as GPs. We are proud of our reputation as an innovative, professional, high quality provider to the NHS.

In our counselling services we see clients aged 16+ suffering with mild to moderate mental health problems like anxiety and depression. Typical problems that people present with include bereavement, relationship difficulties, trauma, family issues, confidence and self-esteem problems, work-place issues and stress. Statistics show that 1 in 4 of us is likely to experience a mental health condition at some point in our lives.

Contact us for details of our new Young People's Service for clients aged 11 and over.

We are now offering counselling by telephone - contact the office for further details.

Confide counsellors help people to get a deeper understanding of their difficulties by exploring their thoughts and feelings, both past and present and then supporting them to bring about change and improve their wellbeing.
