The Counselling, Psychotherapy & Group Therapy Services at Age UK Camden have been providing psychological therapy to older adults in Camden for nearly 22 years.  The services provide time-limited therapy to people 55 and over who are registered with a Camden GP practice.

Our therapists are familiar with the upheaval that life transitions, which are likely to happen to people 55 and over, can cause to our emotions and feelings, like changes in work and family situations, health issues, etc.

The services respect and support diversity in all aspects, including people of all ethnic and cultural groups and LGBT+. Therapy is also available to housebound people and those living with dementia in the early stages or presenting with memory issues.

The services are an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Code of Ethics and recommended good practice.

People can self-refer to Age UK directly or be referred by their GP or other organisations or professionals. To self-refer, email counselling@ageukcamden.org.uk or phone 020 72390400. People can also be referred via iCope.

Counselling which can be either during the day or the evening, is provided by trained and supervised volunteer counsellors on a regular weekly basis.

People who use the service may have lost a baby in pregnancy, or have had to endure the death of a partner, child, lover, parent, relation, friend or colleague in many different circumstances. The deaths may have been caused by illness, accident, suicide, murder, war or natural causes. Very often people may experience a loss or life event that brings up old memories or feelings from earlier bereavements.

The service is confidential and open to anyone over the age of 18 within the catchment area specified, of any sexuality, ethnic origin, culture or religion. In particular it is committed to providing a service to people who are not used to help from counselling.
