Make an appointment to see us

Talk in confidence – at ARC we’re here to listen

If you’d like to see a counsellor or for more information about what we can offer, please call us on 0118 977 6710. The best times to call between 10am and 4pm, but if you get our answer machine (or if you call outside office hours), please leave a message with a telephone number and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

If you telephone for an appointment, you will be placed on our waiting list, which we try to keep to a minimum. All aspects of the appointment will be explained to you by our friendly reception and you can ask whatever questions you wish.

Our opening times (all by appointment) are:

  • Monday to Friday: 10am to 5pm, 6pm to 9pm
  • Saturdays: 10am to 12 noon

For appointments, unless you have been told or requested otherwise, our address is:

35 Reading Road
RG41 1EG

Please note that we offer free parking and disabled access.

We also operate from Twyford, Woodley and Lower Earley in the evenings only. If you would prefer one of these locations, please mention this when you call. All appointments should be made through the Wokingham office.


If you wish to complain about any part of our service please either phone Paul Cassidy, our Co-ordinator, on 0118 977 2818, or email him at and we will promptly deal with your concern.
