About Tilehouse Therapeutic Services


Tilehouse Therapeutic Services provides professional counselling in Hitchin, working strictly within The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework.


Our counselling centre is based in central Hitchin and has six comfortable, private counselling rooms. Sessions are weekly and last for fifty minutes.


Counselling can be short term or ongoing for up to a year. The counselling we provide is integrative, drawing on skills from psychodynamic, person-centred and cognitive behavioural methodologies. We are able to incorporate creative play techniques with our younger clients. Our counsellors are skilled at using psychodynamic principles such as facilitating self-exploration, examining emotional blind spots, identifying negative behaviour patterns and understanding complex relationships.


The evidence based research of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) shows that counselling increases wellbeing because it explores the root causes for negative feelings. This in turn facilitates understanding and the capacity to move forward positively.
