Welcome to Crossroads Counselling

Crossroads Counselling is a small, independent charity based on the Roman Road in Bethnal Green, London, E2.

We offer a professional counselling service to anyone aged 18 and over who lives, works or worships (of any faith) in Tower Hamlets and is on a low income.

We offer individual and relationship (couples) counselling.

We are a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to its Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.

The terms counselling and counsellor and psychotherapy and psychotherapist are often used interchangeably.  We use the terms counselling and counsellor throughout our website to mean both.

We hope you find our website informative and helpful.  Whatever the reason for your visit, we look forward to hearing from you.

Christmas Appeal 2020

What will Christmas look like this year as we wait and watch on the progress of COVID-19 and the restrictions on all of our lives?

With so much uncertainty, it feels hard to plan but here at Crossroads that is exactly what we are doing, trusting in the steadfast love of God to journey with us and bring us out the other side of this awful pandemic.

Having survived the tumult of 2020 and risen to its challenges, moving our counselling service online and making our premises COVID-secure in readiness for when our counsellors and clients can return, we are planning for 2021 and how we can help more people in need.

Can you help us raise £20,000 this Christmas so that we can continue to reach out to a community in need?
