Counselling at First Floor, Jubilee East Health Centre in Sutton

To be referred to see an NHS counsellor, please make an appointment to see your GP or call Sutton Uplift on (Freephone) 0800 032 1411 or 020 3513 4044. There is no fee for this service, and you will be offered between 6 – 12 sessions. We provide weekly 50-minute confidential counselling sessions during GP opening hours Monday to Friday and some Saturday morning appointments are also available. For further details please view the self referral brochure.

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.

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