Ministerial Counselling Service

Churches' Ministerial Counselling Service (CMCS) is a network of professional counsellors operating in England, Scotland and Wales offering subsidised support to ministers and their households. It is sponsored by the Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Methodist Church, the Salvation Army, the Seventh Day Adventist Church, the United Reformed Church, the Anglican Dioceses of Exeter, Guildford, Sheffield and Southwark, and the Free Churches Group

(on behalf of other Free Church denominations)


For more information on the services we provide, see the About Us section.
To check who can receive counselling through CMCS, see the Eligibility pages.
Some of our counsellors now work partly or mainly online, or by telephone -
this page of the BACP website explains how to prepare for that situation  


To request counselling through CMCS, please contact one of the Area Co-ordinators - see the Contact Us page


CMCS provides CPD Training for counsellors 

We are delighted to announce that Gill Harvey has agreed to facilitate CPD Workshops for us in 2024 on the topic of Spiritual Trauma – as linked to
the experience of a childhood in a strict religious background
- more details can be found on the CPD Workshops page
