Counselling at St Peters House

  • Our counselling service is for short-medium term interventions, generally up to 8-10 sessions.

  • We have waiting lists for our counselling so you may have to wait up to 6 weeks for an appointment.  The more flexible you can be with your availability the sooner we may be able to offer you an appointment. 

  • It is not our practice to have children in counselling sessions, exceptions can be made e.g. for breastfed babies.  Feel free to call us if you want to discuss your specific circumstances.  

  • We do not provide counselling for:

  • Individual children under the age of 12 

  • Drugs and alcohol, gambling or other addictions

  • Acute sexual abuse (i.e. a person who has been recently assaulted)

  • Complex mental health issues – personality disorders, schizophrenia, bi-polar, psychosis, severe eating disorders or dementia

  • Acute risk or safety issues

  • Counselling students (e.g. BTI) who are needing to come to counselling to fulfil their course requirements

If you fall into one of the categories we do not counsel, or want to see someone quicker, and you need help finding an alternate service please contact us on
