Booking an Appointment
To book an initial appointment or make an enquiry, please make contact either:
Please make sure your voicemail message, email or letter includes your name and contact telephone number and a counsellor will call you within 48 hours to discuss your needs and explain what the service can offer.
Where an agreement is reached that counselling may be helpful, a brief telephone assessment of your requirements will be conducted, with a view to arranging a meeting for you with a suitable counsellor.
In some cases, if this service is not appropriate, another agency may be recommended to you as a more suitable resource.
All contact within the service is confidential.
Every effort is made to ensure all members of the community are able to access our service. The rates per session are low and are negotiated according to the client's ability to pay.
There is a one-off charge of £10 to cover the cost of the assessment and administration which is payable at the first session.
We are able to offer additional concessions in certain circumstances. Payment will be discussed when you contact us.
Duration of session
Counselling sessions usually last 50 minutes and take place regularly in a private and confidential setting.
The overall length of time spent in counselling depends on the concerns and issues involved and the depth of work required.
