Our counselling service is an essential addition to the support offered by the Services Team to people living with HIV
George House Trust's qualified volunteers provide counselling in a safe and confidential space for anyone using our services to talk about difficulties they may be experiencing in their lives, which they may feel unable to discuss with other services or friends and family.
Counselling can help in a variety of circumstances from relationship problems, bereavement, low self-esteem, isolation and loneliness to coming to terms with a HIV diagnosis.
ACCESSING THE SERVICE
George House Trust services advisers can refer you to the service, following an appointment with them. If you have not accessed any George House Trust services before, we will always arrange an appointment for you to meet with an adviser before referral to the Counselling service.
Following an initial assessment with a counsellor, 12 counselling appointments will be offered. It is important to attend these regularly and to let your counsellor or George House Trust know if you are unable to attend. Appointments are offered both during the daytime and evening. If you require a specific time, you may have to wait a little longer to be allocated a counsellor.
