What is OACS?

OACS is a voluntary, independent, non-profitmaking and confidential counselling service provided by qualified, supervised counsellors.

Our aim is to provide a counselling service which is accessible to everyone in the community whatever their financial status.

We provide a one to one counselling service for the community with both male and female counsellors.

Who is OACS for?

The service is available to any residents, aged 18 or over, who live in the South-East Essex area.

We do not charge a set fee, but we do ask clients to make an agreed regular donation.

This will be discussed at the first session.

OACS operates within the BACP's ethical framework for good practice.

We're recruiting!

We're currently looking for part-time volunteer qualified counsellors.
