“I am really grateful that WCTS exists. The counselling helped me significantly and I wouldn't have been able to afford a private counsellor”

Women’s Counselling and Therapy Service (WCTS) offers a free or low cost accessible counselling and psychotherapy service for Leeds women on low incomes. Venues are in the city centre and in communities around Leeds. Learn about our services here.
