A UNIQUE counselling service aimed at Gloucester's ethnic minority communities has opened its doors.

Jamaica's high commissioner Aloun Ndombet-Assamba joined counsellor Audrey James at the launch of her new business, which runs out of the Afro Caribbean Centre, in Barton Street.

The official opening of the Restore Counselling Service was on Monday when a ribbon was cut.

The business owner believes she may be Gloucester's first black counsellor.

Audrey says the service will be open to all but she especially hopes to help members of the black and minority ethnic (BME) community.

She said: "I'm there for everybody and have a deep understanding of the issues affecting our community, particularly the BME communities."

Audrey moved to the UK from Jamaica as a five-year-old girl and has also had counselling herself.

"I have been in the chair and had my own journey," said the Abbeydale resident.

Appointments can be booked by calling Audrey on 07717 633846.
