Worthing Counselling Centre will become the new name for Offington Counselling Service, based at Offington Park Methodist Church, in South Farm Road.

The charity provides weekly counselling for individuals and couples. It offers fast access counselling for those who do not want to wait and financially supported counselling if cost could be a barrier, aiming to provide support as widely as possible.
