How can counselling help?
Counselling can help if you are:
We understand that counselling is probably a new experience for most people. We provide a safe place to talk, to a skilled counsellor, who will listen and help you understand how past experiences, worries about the future, or lack of self-confidence may be affecting your life. Counselling will help you reflect on how you respond to events and explore the way you deal with relationships.
Is the counselling confidential?
We provide a confidential setting in all our venues. You are free to talk safely, without fear of rejection, criticism or blame. The confidentiality of the relationship between GCS and those seeking counselling is fully protected within current legislation.
On contacting the Service you will be asked to complete a Registration Form and questionnaire. When we receive these with the Registration Fee we will contact you to arrange an assessment at one of our venues. You can 'apply online' - see link below. Please note we operate an ‘appointments only’ system and cannot see anyone who ‘drops in’.
The initial Assessment
Initial Assessment appointments are usually available within a week of registration.
How soon will I be seen?
If you are able to be flexible on times and days you would be available, we would hope to allocate you within 2 - 4 weeks. These timescales may vary due to demand on the Service.
