If you would like counselling
If you would like to receive counselling from us, you can fill in the form below (purple Counselling Request Form button), or call the helpline (0808 802 0013) to arrange this. After you have sent us the form or called our Helpline we will either post out a registration form for you to fill out and send back to us or we will send you an email with a link and password for you to access our on-line registration form for you to complete and submit. As soon as we get a completed registration form back from you we will start arranging your counselling. You will be asked to come in for a face to face pre-counselling visit with one of our Counsellors. This meeting usually lasts for about one and a half hours.
Counselling is a safe space in which to explore your experiences and feelings, in your own time and way. At your pre-counselling visit it will be agreed how many sessions you will be offered, based on your needs. We offer up to 20 sessions. Please be aware there will be a further wait before we are able to offer you a start date for your one to one counselling sessions.
How Counselling works
Counselling is a chance to be heard, and to talk about what has happened to you. Your counsellor will listen to you. You will be supported if you would like to make changes in your life. You will not be told what to do; your counsellor will help you to decide for yourself.
All our counsellors are professionally trained and members of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). You will see the same counsellor at the same time each week. The time will be agreed with you before you start your sessions.
