Our service is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and is completely confidential.
We are bound by the BACP ethical framework for good practice in counselling. We also comply with the Data Protection Act.

Our service is completely confidential. We will not pass on any personal information on without your consent.
The only exception would be if we had very serious concerns about your safety or that of others. In this case we would discuss this with you and encourage you to seek emergency support.
Once you've filled in this self refer form for online counselling we will send you an email back in a few days. The form only takes a few minutes to complete.
A member of the team will aim to get back to you within a week to book an initial assessment (although it might take longer at busier times), giving you the chance to talk about your situation and to explore that further support could be helpful. Any further sessions will be arranged at a time convenient to you.
We do not charge for sessions or calls.
We offer our telephone counselling to adults and children/young people from 11 years up. Our online counselling is only for those 18 and over.
