Counselling and Pastoral Advice


Mental wellbeing is taken seriously in the Diocese of Leicester. Giving time, energy and pastoral support to others can be stressful, both for the church leader and for their close family. Parish life inevitably brings stresses and strains, but when this becomes overwhelming, it can help to talk things through. Whenever it’s needed, a qualified counsellor is available to talk clergy, licensed lay workers and their families’ in total confidence.

No information is passed on unless permission is given by those using the service. The cost of counselling is covered by the Diocesan Board of Finance, but names of those using the service are not disclosed to it.
