Liverpool Chamber is proud of its many charitable members and the work they do. As part of our commitment to them, we are happy to feature charities on our blog and website and highlight their activities.

This week we have some info about COMPASS – Counselling on Merseyside Pastoral and Supporting Service

COMPASS is a Merseyside based charity that has been providing free counselling for anyone over the age of 18 for over 30 years. All COMPASS counsellors work to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

COMPASS has over 27 years experience providing a counselling service to staff and managers of statutory, voluntary and commercial organisations in the region. Some staff find it difficult to discuss their problems with managers or colleagues, it may be that colleagues are part of the problem. Consequently, many staff struggle alone. Their work performance is impaired and their mental and physical health suffers.

There are no retainer fees. You only pay for the counselling that is arranged.

COMPASS also delivers training, both for practising counsellors and for those wishing to train as counsellors.

The Intermediate Certificate in Introduction to Counselling Concepts, validated by the AQA(Assessment and Qualifications Alliance) is a 30 hour assessed course, but to maintain the quality of our training and for those who wish to progress to a higher level, COMPASS has expanded the course to 36 hours training by including “A First look at Loss and Grief” as an additional module. This course runs up to 6 times a year both as a day time and as an evening course.

In addition COMPASS offers regular one or two day courses on a variety of topics relevant to practising counsellors or those whose work involves caring/listening.
