We all have problems from time to time and mostly we solve them by talking to someone close to us such as a husband, wife or friend. But sometimes that’s not enough or possible and we suffer some emotion, stress or loss so great that professional help in the form of counselling is needed.
You can be referred to a counsellor by your GP and all appointments are made directly with the counsellor. As with many things the waiting list for NHS counselling is long so if you wish to see a qualified counsellor sooner the GPs also have access to local private counsellors. Information on private counsellors is available in the surgery.
