Struggling to cope?

The Family Support Centre Shirley provides a quiet and calm place to come to if you are experiencing anxiety or stress in your life and would like help in dealing with it.

Anxiety and stress result from many life issues and we offer a place for people to share their feelings confidentially to find a way forward.

We provide support over relationship issues, and can work with both couples and individuals. For those experiencing relationship breakdown, separation or divorce we run a series of groups to help them with others to face the future on their own.

The Centre is a safe place for women who face pregnancy issues to come and talk. These include unintended pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage & stillbirth and infertility. We do not carry out abortions, but for women who have had an abortion and are struggling emotionally we help them work through their feelings and start a journey of recovery.

All our services are Free of Charge.

Stress and Anxiety

Are you suffering from short term or occasional mental distress and do not feel it serious enough to seek professional help?


Pregnancy related issues

Talking with someone who isn’t involved emotionally with your situation, in a confidential environment, can provide you with the support you need.


Relationship Issues

Life can be difficult sometimes and relationships become strained.


Moving on after separation or divorce

Are you going through a separation, divorce or relationship breakdown? This is likely to be a painful situation.



Are you recently bereaved or dealing with grief and loss and would value the opportunity to talk through how you are feeling?
