Once referred to Newham Talking Therapies, you will be offered an appointment for a telephone assessment to determine suitability for brief counselling with our service. You can talk through the options available to you in your phone assessment and then decide what is best for you. If counselling is deemed the most suitable treatment intervention, you will be allocated to a counsellor for 8 appointments. These appointments will run for 50 minutes on a weekly basis at the same time and day of the week for 8 consecutive weeks.
During the COVID-19 pandemic we are working hard to offer the best treatment options to suit your needs. We are continuing to offer video and telephone counselling appointments. If you require a confidential space to attend your remote counselling appointment, please highlight this request at the point of booking or in your initial assessment appointment.
