If you have an emotional problem and feel some counselling would help, ask for an assessment with one of the Practice Counsellors. There are two trained staff, and appointments are available on week days between 9.00am and 5.00pm. The waiting list is 4 weeks.
Patients should attend the GP initially for information about this service, and to allow her to provide the Counsellor with some basic details. If you have attended the service previously and wish to be seen again, please ask the reception staff to make an appointment.
There is also a Counselling Service available to Employees in Lanarkshire via the HOPE Project.. So if you work anywhere in the region and require emotional support for work related reasons, please mention this to the GP.
