Who We Are

OUR ETHOS: Choices4Growth believe that counselling should be a right not a privilege

The Choices4Growth (C4G-CIC) project is based in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, situated right on the borders of Scotland and England. Traditionally mainstream services have been based in South East Northumberland and north of the Border.

C4G's services are run by Jacqui Davison MBACP, who is a professional counsellor registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and has over 15 years' experience working within local support agencies. 

Currently providing counselling and emotional support to three local schools with proven success, Jacqui has a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the issues and needs of the local community. Rurality and a lack of adequate transportation links between areas create a massive disadvantage for those living in the area.

1 in 4 people in the UK experience mental health issues, with the North East having one of the highest suicide rates.

Our Main Responsisbilities

  • Deliver a wraparound service providing support and counselling for better mental health and positive futures for the whole Berwick community, North Northumberland and surrounding areas, covering both sides of the border
  • Raise awareness through presentations, and source funding to enable the community-based project to succeed
  • Work with children, young adults, parents, carers, guardians, external agencies, local charities and organisations

We were recently awarded funding by The National Lottery, the largest community funder in the UK, who are keen to support our work as they recognise the importance of the project's stability and the need to expand.

Some of the issues currently worked with are; domestic abuse, emotional abuse, relationships, family mediation, bereavement and loss, suicide ideation, drug and alcohol misuse, low self-esteem, challenging behaviour, anger, gender identity, depression, anxiety and safeguarding.

Safeguarding and welfare of all clients is always a priority.

A counselling service for the whole community
