Self-Referring To Relationship Counselling Services

Self-Referring To Relationship Counselling Services

Seeking Relationship Support

If you are interested in accessing counselling to support for your relationships you can self-refer to our services by calling 02890 323454 between the hours of 9am-5pm Monday to Friday. Otherwise, you can complete the enquiry form at the bottom of this page and somebody will get back to you, usually within 48 hours.

We will check with you whether you meet any of the criteria for our funded services and if so we will guide you how to get a referral made through a health professional.

If, however, you do not meet any of these criteria, you may still proceed to counselling through self-funding. The cost per session is £60. Once you have made contact with us, a member of our Scheduling Team will get your details and arrange to book you for an initial 50 minute consultation with a counsellor. 

In the consultation you can discuss with the counsellor the issues you would like to address and they will help you formulate a focus for counselling. For couples, the initial consultation will also involve some time where each of you can speak alone with the counsellor.

Following the consultation session there is usually a short period of time before counselling will commence. The normal duration for self-referral counselling is up to 12 sessions which take place at the same time each week.

We understand that things come up, and we may be able to reschedule individual sessions where you have given enough forward notice, but it is important that you are able to commit to weekly sessions at the same time each week.
