If you’re under pressure at work, experiencing relationship problems at home, or are coping with bereavement, illness, anxiety or depression, we’re here to listen...and to help. Our services are free, confidential and available 24 hour. We’re not just here for past and present ICAEW members. We can support family members too.
24 hour helpline
You don’t have to face it alone. Call us or chat online anytime. Our trained counsellors are here to listen, to offer a new perspective and to help you see a way forward.
Our counselling sessions can help you manage anxiety, depression and other health issues by changing the way you think. We’ll provide face-to-face sessions with a counsellor who’ll help you develop practical and positive ways to manage your thoughts and behaviours and improve your overall state of mind.
If you’re ready to take control and meet your concerns head on, our telephone counselling sessions could be for you. Our telephone-based counselling sessions are tailored to your individual circumstances and goals. Together we’ll work out an action plan then give you all the support you need to achieve a really positive outcome.
Our safe and secure online programme SilverCloud offers effective, supportive programmes for a range of mental and behavioural health issues such as anxiety, depression and stress. The content is designed to be motivational, easy to use, and relevant to your situation.
We've teamed up with Relate to offer relationship and family counselling (including for children over 12 years old), to help you take life's ups and downs together. We're also able to offer sex therapy if you're experiencing difficulties in your love life. Strong relationships take work. It isn't always easy but you can start today by calling CABA.
Telephone life coaching
If you’re struggling at home or feeling uncertain about work, give us a call. Our telephone life coaching sessions give you the support you need, when you need it. They’re a chance to stand back and really understand your personal and professional motivations and goals. We’ll help you plan your next move, so you can put a plan into action.

End of life and bereavement support
Find Me Help is a free online support directory provided by CABA for people dealing with end of life. The facility allows users to search for services in their local area, including end of life care, bereavement support, information and advice, help with caring, and/or someone to talk to.
Real people, real stories
I was getting lifts from a friend initially, then CABA offered to fund the purchase of a modest car. That's made the whole thing so much more manageable - I don't think I could have kept the job without it.
