Counselling Facilities

The practice welcomes a variety of different counsellors and organisations into the surgery building each month to use our dedicated quiet room.

For patients it means that those who would otherwise have to travel far to access these particular services can now be seen in a local and familiar environment.

Counsellors and organisations who currently use our facility include:


If you feel you would benefit from the services of a counsellor, particularly in regard to managing difficult life events and feelings, you can be referred through consultation with one of the surgery's doctors.


This is the principle service for those over 18 seeking help for alcohol and other drug addictions. It can be accessed by self-referral (excluding Torbay and Plymouth). Initial counselling sessions sometimes occur in a patient's own home but more often at our surgery.
