Example Client Contract
It is good practise for there to be a contract counsellor and client. This is a link to an example contract: it outlines details about sessions, fees, confidentiality and contact details. At the initial session, there will be plenty of time to ask any questions if you have any.
The Samaritans are available 24 hours a day to provide confidential emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress, despair or suicidal thoughts.

NHS Choices 111
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. When you call 111, you speak to a highly trained advisor, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it’s not a life-threatening situation.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
This is a twice yearly day of workshops and presentations exploring personal and professional change.
