Westside Therapy, founded in 2019, is a lower-cost counselling service based in the west of Sheffield. It is a service which acknowledges that the usual higher costs of counselling are not always affordable for the many individuals who seek it. It offers both shorter-term brief therapy and longer-term therapy, depending upon the needs of each individual client and the issues that they bring. It offers face-to-face/on-line/telephone counselling.
