How Future Living are working to fulfill the need for more counselling


The need for counselling is growing. We have been receiving more and more requests for counselling appointments for adults outside of school hours. We are delighted to now be able to offer new appointment times. On Mondays and Wednesdays from January 2024, we will now offer a new slot of 3.30 pm.  We appreciate how important access to counselling is for everyone’s mental wellbeing, particularly at this time of year.

A rise in the need for counselling

During the winter months, and with the stresses of Christmas and the rising cost of living, more and more people start to seek help. The lack of daylight can cause a lack of motivation and general decline in people’s mental health. Google searches for ‘seasonal affective disorder’ rise by approximately 500% during the winter months. Having someone to talk to when your feeling particularly low can be a lifeline and can help to process how you are feeling. 


How Future Living aim to meet our clients needs

At Future Living Hertford, we offer a counselling service that is reliable, affordable and holds no waiting lists. We pride ourselves in offering clients the efficiency they deserve and carefully match them with a counsellor who is right for them and their needs.

As a service, we are finding an increase in the number of referrals we are receiving for counselling and as a result, have chosen to extend our operational hours. Where we can, we always strive to accommodate our clients and having the ability to offer more times will give us this option, particularly for clients who have requested a slightly later afternoon appointment.  

Here’s what some of our clients say about our counselling service:

“Thank you so much for being an absolutely wonderful counsellor. You’ve honestly improved my life so much and I am forever grateful for having had my sessions with you. I’m so thankful that you were able to put up with me and my rambling for the past year or so, which has in turn made me more confident in sharing my work with my friends and the wider world.”


“The counselling service at Future Living is by far the best I have accessed. My counsellor really helps me process my feelings.”


“I feel a great connection with my counsellor and it helps that the cost of the sessions are reasonable”
