The Beresford Centre

Based in Newport, the Beresford Centre offers free, impartial and confidential counselling to women and their partners with all types of pregnancy issues. The work includes helping women who are often making very difficult decisions in unexpected pregnancy. We seek to understand, empathise and help them to look at their options and to make their own decision. We also help those having problems after termination and after pregnancy loss. We understand that sometimes women may seek help some years after the loss and we welcome all with a caring, accepting and listening ear. The counselling is non-directive and client led.

The Beresford Centre opened in 1993.
It operates as a charity under New Life Church’s charitable trust. The Director Paquita Sanges and the Regional Co-ordinator Margaret Travis are members of New Life Church and most of our volunteers attend other churches in South Wales. The counsellors are all trained to a professional standard. Clients come from all parts of South East Wales and many self-refer, but we also receive a large number of referrals from medical and caring professionals.
