Compass – Counselling Service Update – 31st July 2020
Compass staff are returning to office working on a reduced timetable from 3rd August. This means that the team can work on a phased reopening of the office to volunteers initially so that we can extend our current range of remote sessions to our clients.
We are currently unable to offer face to face counselling but provide telephone counselling to clients. We have reopened to new referrals so do get in touch if you would like to refer yourself or be referred to our services and we will go through the process with you and advise you of likely waiting times. We will aim to let you know what is available at Compass whenever you get in touch so you can make an informed decision about the best next steps for you.
We are currently looking for applicants to our Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills due to start on the 2nd October 2020 . If you wish to apply for a place on the course please contact ourselves.
We are unable to see any visitors to the service without a prior appointment and this would only be where other options were not available.
Service opening times 3rd August onwards
Mon – Thurs 9.30 – 4.00pm
T: 0151 237 3993
