We keep the running costs of TLC to a minimum. We don't have an office and we don't pay for our counselling rooms. We cover our counsellors expenses and we give them the client hours they need to become qualified. We are entirely reliant on donations to keep doing our work. Thanks to these donations we have now been  providing counselling in Oxford for 23 years.

Please support us by giving.


A direct debit of just £5 per month enables us to provide three client sessions per year.

In our clients words…

“I was relieved and excited. The welcoming voice made me feel that I have come to the right place.”

“My counsellor was very good with a balance between support and listening.”

“I can’t thank my counsellor enough. She was fantastic, made me feel at ease.”

“This therapy happened just at the right time. I would not have been able to carry on without these weekly counselling sessions.”

“I found the fact I could pay an affordable amount extremely helpful. It really helped me speaking to ‘the counsellor’, who is very good at what he does. Thank you very much!”

“After one or two sessions it was life saving. The more I talked to the counsellor, the better I felt. She made me feel so much better about myself.”

“I have seen these things on American programes where people go to talk to someone. I knew it was what I needed but did not know it was here. Thank you very much.”
