All Counselling is by self-referral (you just phone us) there is no need to be referred by your GP or anyone else.   We arrange for you to come for an Assessment, to determine whether or not counselling is likely to prove helpful at this point in time.  It gives you a chance to meet us and for you to decide whether you want to move forward with counselling.


If you've never considered the benefits of counselling before, the testimonies of clients and staff will give you further insight.
