Assessment appointments are available between:  8.30 am -5.00 pm on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays; 8.00 am- 8.00 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  At times of great demand it may be necessary to put your name on a waiting list for an appointment. . 

Please note that due to the confidential process of counselling you cannot make/book an appointment for others.  Counselling must be by self-referral.


In the event of you not being able to attend a counselling session please cancel or re-schedule in advance.

If you do not attend your appointment we will assume that you no longer want to attend for counselling and your appointment time will be used to meet the needs of others. Should you later wish to book further appointments, your name will be put on the waiting list.
