How Do I Refer?

We are happy to accept self referrals from anyone who thinks they might need our help. We also accept referrals from professionals, such as GPs, social workers, nurses etc but we ask that these referrals are always made with the client’s knowledge and consent.

Unfortunately we do not accept referrals from friends or family members.

All of our counselling and support services are free to the people who use them. Services are confidential and offered in a safe and supportive environment. All services are available with language support. We regret that we do not provide childcare facilities.

If you have any other questions about our services or would like some general help or advice, please call us on 0191 514 7007.
