Operating since 1990, Listening Ear is a well-established counselling and support organisation that provides therapeutic services for people aged six and upwards. Based in Halewood, Merseyside, we are a registered charity, a limited company and a social enterprise.
Listening Ear is one of only two organisations in the whole of Merseyside accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
We offer the following FREE services:
- Listening and counselling for adults living in Knowsley or registered with a Knowsley GP.
- Listening and counselling for 18 to 25 year olds living within and outside the Knowsley Borough.
- An award winning (annually since 2006) therapeutic support service for children and young people aged 6 – 17 from within and outside of the Knowsley Borough.
- A monthly Friendship After Bereavement (FAB) Group that can offer support from those who have experienced the loss of a loved one first hand.
In all cases, services are delivered from our dedicated premises in Halewood. An additional outreach service for children and young people runs from Huyton.
Listening Ear has a specialism in supporting children, young people and adults who have experienced bereavement and loss, including family break-up. However, we help people experiencing a wide range of issues in addition to this. If you are experiencing low self-esteem; anxiety; depression; stress; health problems; job-loss; debt; panic attacks; trauma and flash-backs, you are welcome to self-refer to our services and do not need to go through your GP. Just use the enquiry form on the right. If you prefer to contact your GP first, this is fine too. We can offer you a warm, friendly and discreet service.
