Our counselling can be delivered face to face at our centre in Purbrook Way Leigh Park, via Zoom, or over the phone. We are also setting up outreach posts in surgeries and schools/colleges in the area, so if you think this would be useful to your patients/students please do give us a buzz, and let’s have a chat or send us an email via the ‘Contact Us’ page.
