Counselling at GP surgeries in Lambeth

To be referred to see an NHS counsellor, please make an appointment to see your GP or call Lambeth Talking Therapies on 020 3228 6747. There is no fee for this service, and you will be offered between six and 12 sessions. We provide weekly 50 minute confidential counselling sessions during GP opening hours Monday to Friday. Some Saturday and Sunday morning appointments are also available. For further details please see here.

When referring yourself for NHS counselling, you will initially be assessed on the phone by Lambeth Talking Therapies before being allocated to a counsellor. The team will also gain your consent to contact your GP, who will receive some statistical information regarding the outcome of your counselling. In accordance with BACP ethical guidelines, confidentiality will be broken if there is risk of harm to yourself or others.

Our clinical practitioners can offer support for a wide range of issues, and use a number of approaches to therapy.
