Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment. A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes). They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you have.

Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain or making you feel uncomfortable. It can provide a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult feelings. The counsellor is there to support you and respect your views. They won’t usually give advice, but will help you find your own insights into and understanding of your problems (NHS 2016).

The counselling service delivered from Base 25 is free to Wolverhampton residents and referrals can be made using the referral form below.

Base 25 can offer a school counselling service, private counselling (young people/adults) and counselling for out of area, but there is a cost for this service.

Child and Family Service

The Child and Family Service is a service with lots of different professionals who assess, diagnosis and provide treatment for any child or adolescent up to 18 years of age who are experiencing mental health difficulties. Problems people/children come to see us for include things like:

  • Relationship problems
  • Fears of various things
  • Feeling down and sad
  • Eating problems
  • Family Separations
  • Factors that affect learning in school
  • Self harm
  • Difficult habits
  • Psychosis

Families often come to us who are under stress related to a death, birth of a child, relationship breakdown, separations, divorce, remarriage and other unsettling situations. In a child or young person, this stress may show itself in difficult behaviour, strained relationships, minor illnesses, problems at school or simply general unhappiness. Sometimes these things seem so overwhelming it’s hard to see the way forward.



We support children and young people from Wolverhampton who have a learning disability, as well as their families. We also provide support and guidance to other professionals who work with children and young people with a learning disability.

We work with young people from birth up to the age of 18yrs. We help children and young people with a learning disability:


• who feel sad or upset or unhappy.
• who sometimes get very angry.
• who need to learn how to do things for themselves – such as washing, dressing, going to the toilet.
• who sometimes have difficult thoughts that are hard to ignore or that make them feel unhappy or scared.
• to learn how to get on with other people.


We offer community based support and a range of ways to help that include 1-1 therapy support, group support, family working, consultation to professionals and services, teaching and training, skills training. Support can be offered at home, at school or in other community settings.
