About Us

We are a Christian charity offering compassionate care by trained staff and volunteers. We have worked in the Chelmsford area for over 30 years, supporting people through some of the most difficult times in their lives. Our practitioners work within the Ethical Framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

We frequently receive referrals from the NHS and we also welcome self-referral from both individuals and couples.

Our services are available free of charge to all who need them, regardless of gender, race, sexuality or religious belief. Our funding comes from the generosity of grant funders, individuals and local Christian churches.

Assure operates from our Centre at the heart of Chelmsford, Essex. Our premises are located within walking distance of train and bus services and there are car parks nearby. The Centre has a waiting area and bathroom facilities. There is step-free access to our reception area and our two counselling rooms. Please let us know if you have particular access needs.
