Counselling and Listening Service

Here at Butterflies, we offer Person Centred Counselling sessions through our Volunteer Counselling Team.  Person-centred therapy, also known as person-centred or client-centred counselling, is a humanistic approach that deals with the ways in which individuals perceive themselves consciously, rather than how a counsellor can interpret their unconscious thoughts or ideas.  



The sessions are based enabling you to talk openly about your loss with  the counsellor . Through your words and experiences we can help you to work on the issues related to the death in a way that enables you to move forward taking those special memories with you and by locking them safely in your hearts forever.

Our Bereavement Counselling Service is a specialist service addressing the problems associated with bereavement and loss.

Our counsellors are trained to help clients manage the wide range of emotions and responses to loss and bereavement. We help to find a way of coping with life without the loved one and to find a more manageable way to grieve.


We now offer general counselling services also, following an increase in requests for a wide range of counselling areas. These include:

  • Depresssion

  • Anxiety

  • PTSD

We are now able to offer Counselling in person at the Butterflies Centre in Eastleigh or telephone/zoom sessions

Each session is up to 45 minutes in length on a day /time that suits you and the counsellor. Up to 10 sessions are available.  

We do not charge for our services, although as a charity that does not receive funding from other bodies towards counselling, we would appreciate a donation towards our work and the training of our counselling team.

£10 per session  or If on low income £5 per session
