This month’s Business in the Spotlight, we are showcasing one of clients at our Ashby-de-la-Zouch site.
We had a catch up with The Haven.
🗨️ Please tell us about your business and services:
The Haven is a registered charity supported by contributions from clients and donations. We are a team of professional counsellors and therapists who volunteer time freely to The Haven at both our Ashby and Loughborough venues.
We aim to offer clients space and time to help explore and clarify any difficulties they may be facing. Difficulties such as personal and relationship issues, bereavement, illness, stress, redundancy, depression, sexual, physical, emotional, or spiritual abuse.
We work with clients from any ethnic background, of any faith or none.
As counsellors and therapists we work to the client’s agenda. This may include a spiritual dimension if the client wishes.
We offer short and long term therapy dependant on the needs of the client.
Counselling may help you understand and value yourself more, with opportunity to face the future with greater confidence.
Our work is confidential except in certain circumstances which will be discussed with the client.
