Appointments

You can make an appointment by telephone or by email. You can only make a booking for yourself, and not on behalf of someone else. If you leave a message the administrator will aim to reply to you within 2 working days.

Available space

If all available counselling spaces are full in St Andrews we will have a waiting list for appointments. We will take your name and contact details and contact you when a counsellor becomes available. You do not need a referral from your GP or any other professional to make an appointment.

Our location

Our locations are in St Andrews Fife . On Wednesdays we meet clients in Families First Rose Lane St Andrews KY16 9EW (not wheelchair accessible) and on Thursdays we have a room in the St Andrews Community Hospital, St Andrews KY16 8AR.

Cancellations and Non-attendance

Clients are asked to inform Stop & Talk Counselling as soon as possible if they are not able to attend a session, preferably with more than 24 hours notice.If clients do not attend, or cancel with less than 24 hours they are expected to make their usual contribution for that session. The session also counts as one of their 6 contracted sessions, except in exceptional circumstances.If clients cancel or do not attend a session they will be contacted and offered a new appointment. In general, if clients cancel or do not attend two consecutive appointments their contracted sessions will end. Exceptions to this may be made at the discretion of the Charity Director.If a counsellor needs to cancel a session their client will be given as much notice as possible.

Benefits of Counselling

The benefits of counselling can include a greater degree of self-awareness and understanding of yourself and others. This improves self-esteem, and becomes reflective in your personal relationships. Life may feel more enjoyable and fun! You can feel better about yourself and who you are. You can work toward a clear direction, achievable goals and gain confidence in the process.
