As is the case across NHSGGC our services are currently facing significant challenges . We are currently experiencing a high demand for our counselling service. Unfortunately, some of our counselling and support services may have a significant waiting time before we can offer any appointments. Please call 0141 211 6700 to discuss this further as we have a range of support options available.

We offer Counselling services to both adults and young people. We accept self-referrals and GP referrals; for all other health professionals and services, they will need to complete an initial referral form.

All counsellors are bound by the NHS Code of Confidentiality, British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy’s Ethical Framework & British Association of Behavioural Cognitive Therapies. The need to respect client confidentiality is a core principle of counselling. There are exceptions to this confidentiality, for example if you are at risk, but this will be explained in more detail at your first meeting with a counsellor.
