Counselling & Psychotherapy Service in Maidstone, Kent

Kent Counselling & Psychotherapy Service (KCPS) has been established for over twenty years and takes pride in offering a caring, professional service.



The impact of coronavirus on our mental health is huge. Our current situation has exacerbated any original insecurities and fuelled fears of loss, change, being isolated and many more difficulties. We want to offer a service to support not only our Key Workers but to anyone who needs to work through and be supported through this unsettling time.

We are a team of BACP Accredited Counsellors and UKCP Registered Psychotherapists. We aim to offer a supportive, therapeutic relationship to help you think about the things that are troubling you.
Relationship difficulties with parents, partners, siblings, children or friends can be understood. Or the difficulty of not having a relationship.

KCPS helps men, women, adolescents and children in Maidstone and surrounding area. Our practice is in Maidstone Community Support Centre, in the town centre, where a range of services are available.

How does it work?

After a brief telephone conversation an Initial Assessment Session will be offered with a counsellor or psychotherapist who has been trained to listen and make sense of things that may be troubling you. The setting is safe and confidential. The therapist will listen to what is troubling you now and also take a more detailed history of when the problem first started. Sharing a problem can be hugely beneficial, the trained ear can help to understand the conflicts of the mind. Expressing anger, confusion, sadness and other emotions can bring a sense of relief.

Together we can work out more effective ways of coping and living life
