About YCS

Y Cwmni Siarad/The Talking Company (YCS) is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) that has a number of different projects within its remit, all of which work to improve access to therapies and counselling for underrepresented groups. The main service we offer is an affordable, low-cost counselling in Cardiff and Bridgend.

We offer this low-cost, affordable counselling to people who are unable to meet the costs of private counselling. As a CIO, any funds left after covering our costs are invested back into the organisation to provide additional services to our target client groups.

Our Mission Statement is:

'Working with others to provide evidence based support which meets the emotional and psychological needs of underrepresented members of the community' 

As well as our low-cost counselling service, YCS have also delivered continuous professional development training on providing psychological therapies to LGBTQ groups, and we provide a subscription-based website for therapists to advertise their services.

YCS also sponsor research projects that explore the furthering of therapies for underrepresented communities.
