East Belfast Community Counselling Centre was created to help fulfill a need in the local community, to provide a vitally-needed counselling service for adults who might otherwise be excluded because of finance or shortfall in service provision. Prior to the service being set up in 2010 there was no other dedicated counseling services in East Belfast, apart from counseling offered by local churches.
As a charity we believe that everyone should have access to high quality counselling irrespective of their ability to pay.
The counselling service is open to anyone regardless of whether they are male or female, whatever their sexual orientation, ethnic origin, culture or religion, so long as we feel their needs can be met.
The BRO funded Open Door Youth Counselling Project works with young people in the 11-18 age group, living in the Inner Neighbourhood Renewal Area of East Belfast.
