From April 1st 2013, the way patient access counselling services has changed. Instead of the GP referring you to our in-house counsellor, there are now several different organisations who can offer you therapy. Some of these services can be provided locally in the surgery or in Buxton and other organisations can only provide services in other parts of the county.
What do you need to do now?
You need to look at the list below and contact one of these organisations to arrange an initial assessment. You are free to contact several organisations if you want to find out about their waiting times but you can only finally choose one organisation for your therapy.
