Counselling offers the space to talk with a trained professional about whatever is happening in your life as well as offering support through challenging times. Counselling can help to bring new perspective, opportunities for change and healing of emotional wounds.
Yes, confidentiality is assured. The only exception to this is when there is clear likelihood of harm to you or another person.
Protem operates a sliding-scale contribution scheme based on your annual income, so that no one is disadvantaged; as we believe counselling should be affordable for everyone. The fee will be discussed and agreed when you first call.
We have a diverse team of counsellors, male and female, who are trained in a range of therapeutic approaches. We endeavour to meet clients’ preferences, however at times, this may involve waiting longer to see a particular counsellor.
Protem offers a range of appointment times, including evenings and Saturdays. Every effort is made to give priority to those in most need. However, Protem is not a crisis service and anyone experiencing a mental health crisis should consider contacting their GP or attend A&E.
