Family Psychological Services UK is a charity based in South East London. We provide low-cost counselling and psychotherapy to adults, couples, families and children. We also offer parenting workshops. We work closely with Children’s Centers, GPs, IAPT and schools to offer and promote counselling for adults and children. As part of this partnership we will extend our work and provide sessions at various other locations.

We are lead partner for Working Futures funded by London Councils ESF Co-financing (£422,000 2013-15) which is supporting 420 people with mental health problems towards employment. The project was short listed for a National Housing Federation Community Investment Award in the Investors in People category in 2014.
