One in four people will, at some point in their lives, suffer from feelings of anxiety and/or depression. Most of us will also experience situations which involve strong feelings such as sadness, loss, fear or helplessness. These feelings may occur in our past or present relationships and sometimes it is difficult to talk to family and friends. However our Counsellors are qualified and experienced in dealing with these issues and they can help you to understand what decisions or changes may be able to alter your situation.
Appointments are made by referral through your GP. He or she will discuss with you whether counselling might be useful.
Counsellors are available at the practice from the Alcohol and Drug Service. If you feel you would like to access these counsellors, please first make an appointment to see a Doctor in order that you can be referred.
