About Aquilis

Background

Aquilis was established in 2006 and is a team of qualified counsellors / psychotherapists who came together initially to provide counselling for the staff of Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust. As our strong reputation spread, we worked with more people and now offer counselling to the general public, with all income after costs going to the NHS at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust to maintain a free service for NHS staff.

We work in a variety of ways which offer flexibility to our clients. We believe that you, the client, have the power and resources to change (even if you could do with a little help right now).
