Referral Procedure

Clients can self-refer or can be referred by their GP or another health professional. Referrals can be made using the online referral forms below. We are unable to accept referrals via e-mail due to confidentiality.

Please note we do not provide an emergency service. Please contact your GP and out of hours services should you require urgent support with your mental health.

Referral pathway

All referrals are considered on a monthly basis at an allocation meeting led by a senior member of the team. You will be contacted to arrange an initial assessment after this.

We aim to arrange the initial assessment within 3 months  of the allocation meeting.

The initial assessment and Therapy

The initial assessment will be conducted by a qualified member in the team. The initial assessment will be an hour long. The therapist will discuss your difficulties and your hopes for psychological therapy. The therapist will then discuss the most appropriate way forward. We are able to give an indication regarding the length of therapy which is suitable for your needs. You may only need a few sessions or may benefit from longer-term therapy to address past trauma and long-standing issues.

Following the initial assessment, the therapist will book in the first therapy however, there may be a wait of up to 3 months before you are allocated for your course of therapy.

Waiting list

We may close our waiting list to new referrals, where waiting times exceed 6 months. We shall review this on a monthly basis.

Our service is currently open to new referrals

If you are self referring please use the self referral form.
