Counselling is an important component of your recovery, as there are times you may need professional aid to handle certain difficulties and reinforce the techniques you have learnt during rehab. This is why we offer a free aftercare service for a full year after your rehab programme is over. However, if you feel you need professional help from time to time when you’ve completed aftercare, online UK directories for counselling services, such as counselling-directory.org.uk and welldoing.org, can prove helpful in finding a licensed counsellor near you.
