We provide a generic counselling service in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Bases include Alfreton, Chesterfield and Chilwell. Our proximity to the South Yorkshire border also enables us to extend our East Midlands service to meet need in Sheffield and the surrounding localities. To us there is no such thing as a trivial question, we value every enquiry and the person who makes it. Evening and weekend appointments are available. Home visits can be arranged.
Ask is a small team of qualified counsellors and psychotherapists dedicated to helping you attain the experience that you would choose as you navigate your individual challenges and life journey. Working with universal issues we are experienced in a variation of broad based issues that include: G.P referral, addiction, abuse, relationships, depression and anxiety. Our ethos includes a non-judgemental, warm and natural approach. Whether involved in a therapeutic process with an individual self- referral or a multiple engagement such as a couple, family or group the feelings and the view point each person with whom we work are held in the highest regard. Working with the differing client bases listed above we are able to adapt to the need of the specific enquiry.

The name “Ask” is derived from the belief that it is your individual ask of us that is paramount. Consistent research has shown that the therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance to positive outcome. A truth that is entrenched into our practice.
We at Ask pride ourselves on being big enough to cope yet small enough to care.
In the shared ethos that the benefits of a service such as ours should be made as accessible as possible we have developed community based workshops dealing with issues such as self-confidence,stress and personal development. The precise focus of workshops is negotiated with those who attend. See Workshops for more details.
