Counselling makes a lasting difference to people's lives. It empowers them to gain understanding and take control, improving their quality of life and that of the people around them. Through counselling people are able to explore what matters to them and resolve difficulties that they experience more confidently. At the end of their counselling, most Compass clients say that they feel significantly better.Our impact on the community
