When referring yourself for NHS counselling, you will initially be assessed on the phone by Sutton Uplift 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.
Most of our NHS counsellors, psychotherapists and counselling psychologists are either in training, working towards qualification or accreditation.
