Counselling

You may be experiencing a lack of direction which is impacting on your daily life, such as feelings of anger, anxiety, depression, loneliness, grief, a poor sense of self-worth or experiencing difficulties with a relationship.

Counselling can help and support you navigate these feelings. By speaking to a counsellor, you are able to explore your feelings and experiences, in a safe and non-judgemental space. There is no reason to feel embarrassed or ashamed of what you feel – a counsellor is there to offer support and guidance.

HearSay Trust offers subsidised counselling to address behavioural, emotional and mental health issues that affect individuals and families. We also offer counselling and support to people with a range of disabilities and those who support them.

We're here to give you a helping hand

About Us

HearSay Charitable Trust is a registered charity.

It was founded in 2004 by Dr Kitty Morgan-Jones. We provide a counselling service for the Maidstone and surrounding areas. Our counselling rooms are in Marsham Street, Maidstone, Kent.

HearSay Trust provides counselling and psychotherapy to support families, children, adolescents, and others who are affected by a range of mental health difficulties, behavioural and emotional problems, that can impact on a family, including support for issues arising from ADHD, autism and other long-term conditions and disabilities.

HearSay Trust is committed to equality for all. We will work to ensure that clients experience no form of discrimination or disadvantage in their dealings with the Trust. We will support adults, children, adolescents, and families to make realistic choices about how they can live their lives in ways that will satisfy them. We believe in responding proactively, in an effort to avoid a crisis.

Our Services

HearSay appreciates that the cost of private counselling can be inaccessible to some people, which can be frustrating to those experiencing difficulties.

The Trust therefore provides subsidised counselling, with additional concessionary rates for those in receipt of benefits.

Our fully qualified, British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) registered counsellors typically provide 6-8 sessions of counselling to clients. Our philosophy is to respond to a client referral by contacting the client within 48 hours.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

HearSay has the opportunity to offer our clients a different form of counselling for children over the age of 11yrs and adults. It is appreciated that some people feel more comfortable in non-room-based counselling sessions.

The service is with a B.A.C.P. registerd counsellor.

Equine assisted Psychotherapy which is a short term and effective therapeutic approach that uses the dynamic nature of horses in a natural environment. It is a collaborative activity with horses that encourages participants to gain new insight into their thoughts and emotions, whilst interacting with the horse, not riding the horse.

It is acknowledged that the positive interactions with an animal may lead to benefits in the mind and body, such as reduced stress and an overall more balanced mental and emotional state, reducing such as levels of anxiety, anger issues, behavioural and poor self-confidence problems.

There is no riding involved, all the work is done on the ground and no previous experience or knowledge of horses is necessary.
