We are incredibly proud to hear this week that one of our fantastic volunteers, Rebecca Oaks, has received an MBE from the Queen for her services to coppicing and woodcraft. This is a remarkable achievement, particularly as we know she has also offered so much time and commitment to our clients at North Lancashire Counselling too.
On behalf of everyone at NLCS, we share our congratulations and thanks for all you do! Well done!


Welcome to new members of the team

I offer a very warm welcome to our four new Trainees – Nicola, Dianna, Amanda, and Rowan – who I know are getting underway with their counselling. We are all here to support you and each other, please do ask if you have any questions.

I am also happy to welcome our two new Trustees, Christiaan Morgan and Rachel Stevenson, who have just joined the team with a wide range of experience and skills that will be a great asset.

And finally, welcome to Emily and Henry, who are both volunteering with us as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award – all the best with your endeavours!

A short video…

John Finch, a friend of NLCS, visited our new website and downloaded our 30th birthday celebration booklet, available as a download here. As a result he took the time and trouble to put together a short “taster video” summarising what we do.

Enjoy and, from all of us at NLCS, thank you again John
