Pastoral Care & Counselling
Counselling is available for licensed clergy, their immediate families, licenced readers and lay workers and diocesan employees, 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.
