New Name, New Look

A new name & a new look – Worthing Counselling Centre

On 11 October 2017, Worthing Counselling Centre will become the new name for Offington Counselling Service. On that date, a new website will go live.

The name change is designed to raise awareness of the charity and our scale as a major provider of counselling in the community of Worthing. We will continue to focus on our charitable aim to provide counselling as widely as possible, as we have done for the last 35 years.

Since 1983 the charity has provided weekly counselling for individuals and couples seeking support for emotional difficulties. It offers fast access counselling for those who do not want to wait and financially supported counselling if cost could be a barrier, aiming to provide support as widely as possible.

The date for the relaunch ties in with Worthing Mental Health Awareness Week (WMHAW) at Offington Park Methodist Church, where Offington Counselling Service has been based since 1983.

WMHAW includes launch events for Worthing Counselling Centre:

Wednesday  11 October  10am – 12 noon

Come and Meet Us  plus  ‘The Courage to Heal’ – a free talk on counselling

Includes free refreshments

This is an opportunity to speak informally with the team about what counselling is and isn’t and learn more about us and some of the creative approaches we use.

Celebration quiz night Wednesday 11 October 7pm

Come on your own and we’ll join you with others or as a team of up to six people.  Tickets £5 in advance includes light refreshments – 01903 212275 or email All proceeds will go towards Worthing Counselling Centre’s bursary fund.

Worthing Counselling Centre encourages members of the general public, interested professionals, organisations looking to provide counselling and those who have used the service, to attend the events.

As a charity, there is always the need to fundraise and build the expertise within our trustee team. As we relaunch, if you have been a beneficiary of our service or are interested in what we do and would like to give back or make a contribution, please do get in touch – 01903 212275.
