Description

As it is telephone and video counselling, you don’t need to worry about travelling to your appointment; you just need a quiet place where you can talk to your counsellor.

You will have weekly appointments with the same counsellor, which means you won’t have to repeat what has happened to you each time you call.

The service is free and confidential. The phone call will not show up on your phone bill and you won’t be charged for video calling.

All Health in Mind counsellors are fully trained, highly experienced and from a range of backgrounds.

Counselling is in English and:
