Southway Counselling Centre

Health & wellbeingWelfare / Support services
Southway's primary activity is to provide individual counselling which is affordable and available, utilising trained and experienced voluntary counsellors.

Southway Counselling Centre is a community counselling service that seeks to support people as they develop more creative and satisfying life patterns. Southway has been operating in Cheltenham since 1998 and has a team of around 10 counsellors with a wide range of specialisations and expertise. We are hosted by Southern Community Church of Christ, but the counselling service is faith-neutral and open to people of all faiths or none.

We offer weekday daytime or evening appointments in person (subject to public health regulations and prior agreement), over the phone, or using Zoom or similar video calling software.

We offer counselling for all age-groups. Counsellors work with individuals, couples and family groups as appropriate.

Southway is affordable. A sliding scale of fees is linked to a person’s income, and the appropriate fee is determined in conversation with the counsellor at the first session. We try to ensure that no-one is prevented from accessing Southway’s service for financial reasons.

Southway takes confidentiality and privacy seriously. You can obtain a copy of the Southway Privacy Policy and the Counsellor Code of Ethics upon request.

Southway is not a crisis support service - if your need is urgent, please refer to the State Government’s list of resources at
