Release offers professional and affordable counselling for individuals, families and couples. The service is based out of YMCA Surbiton, where it is open to all.

  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Stress
  • Abuse: physical, verbal, sexual, emotional, mental
  • Issues of faith and spirituality

We offer weekly sessions of 50 minutes which will continue for an agreed period. This can be brief (e.g. 6-12 sessions) or longer depending on need.

Our counselling services are open to all regardless of age, gender,faith, physical ability or sexual orientation.


Our aim is to provide a counselling service that is accessible to all. Fees will be agreed and dependant on the ability of the individual to pay.
