All counselling and support is now being offered by telephone or video link. 

Our update on Covid-19 and Listening Ear explains more.


We believe in the transformative power of counselling. As a thriving and developing charity and social enterprise, we’re here to help those who’ve been bereaved, suffered loss or experienced separation.

We’re proud of our services and our partnerships with local authorities, the NHS, schools, local businesses and the trusts and foundations that help fund our work. We’re equally proud of the staff and volunteers who help us deliver high quality therapy and support.

The future development of Listening Ear depends on us maintaining and expanding these links, as well as on the support and donations we receive from individuals like you. Together, we make a great team.
