I'm a Professional
How Can I support The Young People I see?
At Off The Record we offer free early intervention counselling, groupwork and support for 11-25 yr olds in the area as well as their parents or carers.
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.
Your Journey with OTR starts here
1.You self-refer or are referred into OTR using the webform or calling us
2.You’ll then be put on a waiting list. Meanwhile our support workers will continue to check in with you each week
3.When you’re at the top of the waiting list we do an initial assessment to ensure we’re the right fit for you
4.In the initial assessment the counsellor will also talk you through counselling, group work and our young carers program
5.At this point you are assigned a counsellor that best suits your needs
6.You can do group work or young carers at any point – so it can be in conjunction with counselling, before or afterwards, in fact young carers is a long-term ongoing program
