About The Harbour
talk to when you need it most
We are a charity with over 20 years’ experience of delivering professional counselling and psychotherapy, free of charge, to people affected by life-threatening illness. Each year we support more than 200 people from Bristol and the South West, carrying out in the region of 2,000 counselling sessions per year.
You don’t need to live in Bristol to access our services, and you can refer yourself or be referred to us by another organisation – please contact us if you have any questions about how to do this.
We focus on making the most of limited resources – we are a small yet professional team who are supported by passionate volunteers. Our services are free, so it is vital that we raise the money we need to deliver them each year. The more we raise, the more people we can help.
