About Support Plus
Support+ offers clients a level of support that sits between the current Information and Advise services and the Professional Therapeutic Counselling Service.

As we are a Registered Charity and due to contract and grant awards, we are able to provide some free support plus services for particular age groups or geographical areas. Currently, free support plus services are available to children and young people aged 10-18 who live within Daventry, East Northants, Northampton, South Northants and Wellingborough

As we are also a ‘Company Limited by Guarantee’ we can undertake trading activities so therapeutic services can also be purchased from Service Six. If you are an adult, feel you need support plus but would not be eligible for our free services, please contact us to discuss further the options in buying a service from us.


Support+ is a confidential service and the primary aim is to provide 1-2-1 support for people who are looking to access our Counselling Service, who are on the waiting list for our Counselling Service, who are in need to talk to someone and/or who are in a crisis situation.
Experience has shown us that sometimes people simply need a space to be able to offload and be listened to, particularly in a time of crisis and not all people need ongoing therapeutic counselling.


Support+ offers that space.
1-2-1 support sessions are initially offered on a 'one off' basis and will be a booked appointment of between 30-50 minutes. This gives a person the opportunity to meet someone from the Support+ service and to have an initial session to talk to someone about what is troubling or worrying them. If the person requires further support, initially 4 Support+ sessions can be booked with a review of their progress made.
