Our counselling service is for anyone, including young people age 11 and above, where issues around e.g. sexual health, HIV, sexuality, sexual identity, sexual relationships, sexual trauma, inappropriate or risky behaviours is affecting their mental health and wellbeing.

From May Lisa will be fully vaccinated against COVID and will, in line with guidance, be able to resume face to face sessions. However, we will continue to offer online counselling as an option for clients.
We will always follow the most up to date Government guidance for COVID, alongside our own policy and procedures. As routine, we will always provide hand sanitiser for client’s use and we will always sanitise the counselling area after each client.
We can offer up to 12 sessions per individual or couple and sessions take place in a safe, confidential and relaxed environment.
