Seeing A Counsellor

 

Anyone considering seeing a counsellor from PCS needs to refer themselves by ringing our phone number: 01437 768708

When you ring, you get through to an answer phone and you are asked to leave your name and contact number. It is helpful if you include in your message when it is a convenient time for one of our qualified counsellors to ring you back to speak to you confidentially over the phone.

When a counsellor rings you back, they will discuss with you what would be the right course of action available for you to take, which could include our counsellor referring you to another agency or organisation better placed or more appropriate for your particular circumstances. We actively seek to work with other organisations and services to ensure the best possible uses of resources and to ensure the best interest of those who contact us. As an established and respected counselling service provider, we always have a waiting list to see a counsellor and times can occasionally exceed three months. We are able to provide callers, who are unable to wait this long and/or having sufficient funds, to recommended and approved private counsellors.

If it is decided that PCS can be of help to you we will put your name on our waiting list.  When a counsellor becomes available to see you they will contact you by phone, introduce themselves and provide all the information you will need to successfully meet for your first session. It is important that you arrive at the appointment made for you on time. If for any reason you are unable to attend, we ask that you contact your counsellor immediately via the contact details they have provided to you.
