Welcome To The Worsley Centre

ann_optAnn Heathcote opened The Worsley Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling in 2001, as a centre for the provision of professional psychotherapeutic services.

The Worsley Centre is a warm and welcoming environment for people wishing to undertake counselling and psychotherapy. The practitioners at the Centre care deeply about each individual’s mental health and well-being. They all share a passion for providing high quality therapeutic services.

Our counselling and psychotherapy service is on the border between Worsley and Walkden in North West Manchester, which is within easy reach of areas such as Bolton, Bury, Leigh, Oldham, Prestwich, Sale, Stretford, Swinton and Wigan.

As well as counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples and groups on a private basis; we also provide hypno-psychotherapy; supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists; and therapy rooms for practitioners.

Why have psychotherapy or counselling?

We all have times when the going gets tough and we need someone who will really listen to us and our concerns and work with us to help us sort things out, so that we can feel better.

The talking therapies, i.e. counselling and psychotherapy, have been shown to help people deal with difficulties such as stress, anxiety, anger, depression, relationship problems and breakdowns, low self-esteem and confidence, loss and grief, bereavement, and personality difficulties.
