Waiting List Closes for Young People’s Counselling

It is with regret that we have to announce that FDAMH’s Young Person’s Counselling Service will not be taking any new referrals from 29th March 2018. We have had to take this regrettable decision due to the increasing numbers on our waiting list. We will update you as soon as the service re-opens.

Reminder of Closure

From 22nd Jan FDAMH will close for one week for refurbishment. All services will be unavailable while our staff use the time for training and development work (in between moving furniture!).

We are sorry for the disruption but hope you will all appreciate having our lovely centre looking at its best.

Adult Counselling Waiting List Closed until September

We are still accepting referrals to Young Person’s Counselling (14 to 18 years). However due to the length of our waiting list for adult counselling (ages 19 and over) we have taken the decision to stop accepting referrals for several weeks until Monday 4th September.

During this period please remember that our Immediate Help Service offers an opportunity for one-to-one support and assessment, without the need to make an appointment. Our Immediate Help staff will listen, provide emotional support and information, and help you find out about services that may be of benefit to you – whether in FDAMH or elsewhere.

You may also wish to note that our Fast Track Counselling Service, for those willing and able to pay for their counselling, remains open, helping to alleviate pressure on the waiting list for our Adult Counselling.
