Pastoral Care & Counselling
From January 2019, counselling is available for clergy, their immediate families, readers and diocesan staff, through the Churches’ Ministerial Counselling Service (CMCS). CMCS exists to help these individuals to deal with challenging, emotional issues they face, whether work related or personal, through short-term, professional counselling.
The service is entirely confidential, and can be accessed anonymously, through self-referral. The Diocese of Exeter will normally meet the full cost of counselling accessed through the scheme.
For further details, and information on how to self-refer, please view the service leaflet: Churches’ Ministerial Counselling Service.
