EBS Counselling Service, previously known as EBS The Bereavement Service, for Eastleigh and Southampton was launched In 1994 by the then Mayor of Eastleigh Mrs Bobbie Jones, as a specialist bereavement service. In 1996 EBS became a registered charity and celebrates 21 years service to the community in 2017.
In 2016 the service was extended to include all forms of counselling and emotional support as well as bereavement to all those aged 18 and over. We offer a non-judgemental, confidential, safe and supportive environment for clients to explore their thoughts and feelings. General counselling covers, for example, work related issues, changing job, bullying, living problems, sexuality, loss, moving house to name just a few. In fact, anything which affects a person’s quality of life.
