Churches Ministerial Counselling Service

To contact an Area Co-ordinator

The list below gives contact details of our Area
Co-ordinators who can help you by finding a counsellor


The Area Co-ordinator (AC) for your area will know the counsellors near you best. However, you are free to approach any AC if you prefer not to contact the one shown for your area, or if the one for your area is temporarily unavailable. All ACs have the full list of counsellors, so should be able to put you in touch with one within a reasonable distance from where you live.

Normally ACs are available between 9 am and 8 pm Monday to Friday.  If they are unable to reply immediately, or if you call outside these hours, please leave a message and the AC will contact you as soon as possible.  These phone numbers and email addresses are exclusively for CMCS, not for personal or family use, so no one else except the AC will hear or read any message you leave.
