Pastoral Care and Counselling

Stone Background


Welcome to the Pastoral Care and Counselling pages, where clergy and their families are able to access support and advice for a wide range of needs that occur for many of us, from time to time.

You will be able to find (in the green box to the right of this) contact details for Rebekah Golds-Jones, Officer for Pastoral Care and Counselling, as well as the referral form and pathway to this service.

The Pastoral Care Policy and Archdeacon Fiona's reflections regarding Pastoral Care can be found just below in the blue box. This is the original policy, and, over time, you will see that revised versions will be published on these pages. If however you are left with any queries, please don't hesitate to contact the Officer for Pastoral Care and Counselling.

The Pastoral Care and Counselling pages have been designed to be user friendly for clergy and their families, so that the required area can be found by clicking upon the link below, which then provides further option choices by clicking upon the appropriate hyper-link.

Whilst there are Christian specific organisations and charities listed, you will also find links to statutory sector and secular organisations and charities, too. There are national organisations to consider, as well as more locally based support. The hope is that by providing you with a wide ranging base of options, you will find the most appropriate support to your needs at this time.
