The Ashburnham Labyrinth was officially opened as a place for quiet reflection, prayer and for therapeutic use, on July 1st 2017. Not to be confused with a maze; the Ashburnham Labyrinth offers a singular spiralling path leading to its centre and returning by the same route. It has been designed to symbolise welcome, openness, inclusion, and to naturally embrace the cycles of Nature and the rhythms of life.

Fees for counselling and eco-therapy are charged on a ‘sliding scale’ to ensure this service is affordable for all.

Open to all

The counselling service at Ashburnham Place is open to all, regardless of gender, sexual preference (LGBQTA welcoming), ethnicity, culture or faith.


The client is at liberty to end therapy at any point; but because endings are important, we aim to talk about it, even if it feels difficult.

Self Care

Sometimes, people have therapy simply as a means of support and self-care.
This is particularly helpful if you have a role in which you are supporting others.

Initial Assesment

Your first session is an initial assessment, where you are invited to meet with your Counsellor to discuss your needs and help you clarify what you hope to get from therapy.


Your counselling is confidential except for extreme circumstances. Any correspondence with outside agencies (eg. your Doctor) will be made only with your consent.

“Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the “Beloved.” Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence.” Henri J. M. Nouwen
