Who Are We?
IN-SIGHT B.C.C.S. = Bury Christian Counselling Service.
We are a group of counsellors who are Christians, but from a variety of backgrounds. Our counsellors are all either fully qualified, holding either secular or Christian Diplomas in Counselling, or are trainee counsellors.
All counsellors receive regular supervision from qualified supervisors. We offer a free service to anyone who has a need. Counsellors give their time and skills voluntarily, but we welcome donations.
IN-SIGHT B.C.C.S. was established in 1991 and is now a Registered Charity. It is affiliated to the Association of Christian Counsellors and endorses their code of practice.*

What is counselling ?
Counselling may be sought in times of personal need or problems but it is not only concerned with crisis. It may be described as a process which seeks to help people towards constructive change and growth in their lives, leading to a better understanding of themselves and an increased ability to cope.
It is concerned with the whole person - emotions, attitudes, behaviour, relationships, with feelings as well as thoughts. Counselling takes place within a safe, caring relationship with mutually agreed boundaries.
Christian counselling is all of this but is practised within a framework of Christian commitment, insight and values.
