Welcome to Ealing Abbey Counselling Service
Ealing Abbey Counselling Service (EACS) is an established registered charity which offers confidential, professional help and a range of skills to meet the needs of our clients, without discrimination. We are a non denominational service – our counsellors and clients come from a range of backgrounds, cultures and belief systems.
Our office and counselling rooms are on the first and second floor of a converted Victorian building and accessed via side fire escape stairs. We have limited use of a ground floor annexe to the rear of the building for those requiring disabled access.
The Service was founded in 1994 and has developed from a small beginning of seven founder members into one of the largest voluntary sector counselling and psychotherapy providers in London.
We have around 85 practitioners, most of whom are volunteer counsellors, psychotherapists and counselling psychologists who are at an advanced training stage. Some of our volunteer practitioners continue to offer their services at EACS post qualification and training.
We also have a team of qualified and experienced supervisors who provide monthly clinical supervision to our counsellors in groups of 3 or 4; and a team of assessors who carry out a comprehensive face to face assessment for all service users wishing to access counselling/psychotherapy at EACS.
We have a small team of 5 permanent, part time paid employees who administrate, manage and oversee the Service.Our aim is to offer a professional, safe and supportive environment for both our clients and our practitioners.
Ealing Abbey Counselling Service (EACS) Response to Covid-19
Ealing Abbey Counselling Service is pleased to announce that we are continuing to offer our assessment; and counselling and psychotherapy provision to both existing and new service users during this unprecedented time. Although EACS has temporarily ceased operating from its physical premises in line with government directives, we have moved across the board to on-line audio-visual therapy sessions or telephone sessions to enable continuity of therapeutic support for our service-users.
