We exist purely to help you...

Online or face-to-face counselling now available!

At TIC+ we’re here to support children and young people aged 9-21 and their families living in Gloucestershire.

Every one of us is on a journey. For some, life might seem plain sailing but for many, the path can be a bit more bumpy. Maybe your life has hit a roadblock and you want to find a way out. Or you’re stuck at a crossroads and aren’t sure which way to turn.



Whatever your situation, you're not alone:

  • Your situation doesn’t have to stay as it is. There is always a solution.
  • Although bad things can happen, you don’t have to let your past experiences or actions determine your future.
  • There is a way through so never give up or give in to your circumstances.
  • Often in difficult times it’s good to talk to someone you trust about how you feel.

At TIC+, we’re here to listen and help you get your life back on track. You can talk to us in confidence and we’ll never judge you. Contact us to get the support you need today.

About our counselling team

At TIC+ we ensure all our counsellors are carefully selected for their specialist experience in working with young people. We work to a strict code of ethics and practise to guarantee the safety of the young people we support.

The TIC+ ethos is based in Christianity, but our faith won’t be explicit in our counselling sessions, and you don’t have to be religious to receive support from us. We employ counsellors and support young people from all faiths (or none) and are committed to treating everyone equally and with respect.

  • BACP

    TIC+ is an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). We work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

  • DBS

    Our counsellors have relevant enhanced DBS checks (Disclosure and Barring Service) that are updated on a regular basis.

  • Supervision

    We’re committed to the care of our young people. All our counsellors receive regular supervision with a qualified clinical supervisor to ensure our young people’s safety and help improve our services.

  • Ongoing Training

    At TIC+, we pride ourselves on the quality of our staff. All therapeutic staff are fully qualified to at least Counselling Diploma level (a minimum of 450 taught contact hours) and are committed to ongoing training to support their professional development. 


    We use Young Persons Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation (YP CORE) to evaluate the counselling process. A decrease in the total score suggests a decrease in the distress of the young person. These are our results from the past 12 months.

  • How was this meeting?

    We use 'How was this meeting?' as an ongoing evaluation of our counselling sessions.

My counsellor always listened and was very helpful. The sessions always ended with good advice to help me feel better. Counselling definitely improved my mental health and I no longer have suicidal thoughts. Shannon, 15 years old

Our counsellors can travel to meet you near where you live or, if you prefer, you can meet them privately at school.

99% of young people counselled by us felt listened to during counselling.
