The * first step to make a counselling referral, is to complete an * online referral form or to * telephone 0208 595 9633, or to * E-mail our referral co-ordinator Roger Lloyd, who is a trained counsellor. He will speak with the prospective client and offer an initial consultation, counselling assessment, a face to face meeting with a therapist to discuss what counselling involves and decide whether further contact would be beneficial, either a specific number of sessions or more open ended work.
* When you refer to a counsellor it is helpful to know whether counselling has been offered previously and if any medication has been prescribed.
* Where a health professional or agency is involved in the referral we offer a reduced fee assessment. Our standard fees are £35 to £50 for the first session. Any further work is at a fee affordable to the individual or couple. The higher assessment fee demonstrates the commitment to this professional process of counselling.
