LCGL Counselling and Training Services
LCGL Counselling and Training Services are a free counselling service that responds to the needs of children/young people and adults in Lincolnshire who are experiencing the unmanageable symptoms of grief and loss following a significant life event. At LCGL Counselling and Training Services, all of our counsellors are members of a recognised counselling body and have undergone an enhanced check with the Disclosure and Barring Service. All of our counsellors have a special interest in working with clients within the grief and loss process and are committed to providing an effective professional and confidential counselling service for adults, children and young people in Lincolnshire. LCGL Counselling and Training Services offer training courses to other organisations, and it is our organisational aim to work in partnership with the statutory, voluntary & private sectors to enhance the skills of practitioners in responding to grief/loss, and associated presenting problems.
