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

ExploringU Counselling already has two centres for wellbeing in Sudbury and Castle Hedingham in Essex.

The service, launched by psychotherapist Glenda D Roberts in 2008, has now opened its new office within the Neal’s Yard Remedies and Therapy Rooms in Abbeygate Street in Bury.

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.

“We are delighted to be opening yet another new office, meaning more people than ever will have easy access to our services.

“The new office offers a calm, quiet and safe space where people can work through their emotional issues with qualified counsellors in a confidential environment.

“We offer counselling to individuals, couples and families and to those on a low income. We also take referrals from GPs so people can access counselling services when they need them rather than being placed on long waiting lists.”

The office in Bury St Edmunds will be open Monday to Friday and counselling sessions will be available by bookings only.

Anyone interested in any of the services offered by ExploringU should telephone 01787 829141 or email
