Counsellors are available both on the NHS and privately. We can provide you with a list of options if you are considering private counselling. Should you wish to consider counselling via the NHS, you would need to see one of the doctors first.  He/she will then refer you to the community team and they will contact you directly to arrange a suitable appointment.  There is a waiting list unfortunately for NHS counselling. Please ask at reception for further details.
