An award-winning counselling service is celebrating further expansion after opening a new office in Bury St Edmunds.

A wide range of counselling and psychotherapy services will be available at the new office in addition to acquired brain injury (ABI) rehabilitation support services.

Ms Roberts, who is a member of and media spokesperson for the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), said: “We have experienced significant success and expansion since 2008, collecting a number of prestigious awards along the way.
