What We Offer

The Living Way is a Professional Counselling service based in Sunderland offering general counselling for adults over 18, couples and family therapy for groups of all ages. Our counselling room is based in the North Sands Business Centre, not far from the city centre.

We offer counselling to anyone irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, religion or ethnic origin.

We cover a wide range of issues - such as depression, stress or anxiety, low confidence or self-esteem issues, those who may have suffered abuse or other trauma, the breakdown of a close relationship, and many other emotional distresses and traumas.

We are a Christian organisation serving the community. Although our counsellors are Christians, we do not impose our own values or beliefs on clients, but are willing to include the Christian dimensions into sessions where appropriate.

Our counsellors are trained to a high professional standard and use an integrative approach. They believe that the most important ingredient in any counselling process is the establishing of a genuine, accepting and warm counselling relationship.

Our counsellors receive regular supervision which offers professional accountability; they also continue to seek opportunities for further training and learning to extend areas of knowledge that will benefit their practice.
