Counselling

Counselling

Counselling at FDAMH for adults is available for those living in Falkirk District ages 19 years and over.

Our Young Persons’ Counselling Service provides counselling for those aged 14 to 18 living in Forth Valley.

Counselling can help you to explore problem areas in your life and support you to bring about changes that will empower you to make new and positive choices.

Our trained counsellors will work with you in a supportive and safe environment where you can talk openly about your concerns and problems and help you work towards leading a more satisfying, less troubled lifestyle.

About the service

The counselling service is recognised by COSCA (Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland). Service provision is free of charge.

When a counselling slot becomes available you will be matched with one of our trained counsellors and assessed for your suitability for counselling and offered approximately eight, 50 minute sessions. You will meet with the same counsellor, at the same time and on the same day each week.

Counselling sessions are currently available each weekday from 9am to 4pm (3pm on Fridays) and on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 5pm until 9pm. Your own availability is a significant factor in the length of wait you may face.

Fast Track Counselling

A Fast Track service is available for clients (ages 14+) who wish to pay for their counselling sessions. This removes people from the waiting list for our standard service.

If you are interested in this service please let us know that you are interested in the Fast Track option. The Fast Track service aims to offer counselling within two weeks of receiving your forms.
