Safespace Helps You Maximise Your Potential

We Support You To Get To a Better Place

Safe Space counselling service was established a decade ago to work with clients with, or recovering from, drug and alcohol problems. Since then the service has been extended to vulnerable people in general, even those whose main concerns are not drug or alcohol related.

You can discuss with you counsellor all aspects of your life, not just drugs/alcohol.

The service is available and generally free to anyone over 18 years old living in the Nottingham City/County area, but if you are working you will be asked to consider making a voluntary donation of whatever you feel able to afford.

You may also be able to make a contribution to the service, which is non profit making, by accessing your individual health or social care budget – see choosemycare website

We aim to provide an efficient, effective, caring and confidential service to our clients.

The organisation conduct internal evaluation reports on our counselling service working with people in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. This report was completed in 2019 and demonstrated that we are a “vital part in supporting some people” through recovery. Futher interviews with clients “revealed clear tangible benefits”.
