Counselling Services

We help people with a wide range of worries, common mental health problems and emotional difficulties.

Even though many of these problems are not unusual, they can become overwhelming, distressing and make day-to-day life a struggle.

Difficulties we can help with include:

  • Low mood – depression, stressful life events, loss of motivation, low self-esteem, problems at work, relationship distress
  • Anxiety – worry that is difficult to control, anxiety about social situations, panic attacks, traumatic events, obsessive thoughts and behaviours

Family Planning Services

Confidential contraceptive advice, fitting of contraceptive device and prescriptions are available free of charge, from your own doctor. We are very happy to see, help and advise teenagers on these matters. Please make an appointment during normal surgery hours. Emergency contraception is also available.

Providing that you are currently taking a contraceptive pill, are stable (no new headaches, blood clot in leg/lung, new onset of heart problem) and do not wish to make changes to the pill you are currently taking; then you may submit a manual prescription request at Reception by completing a contraceptive pill request form. You will be asked to record an up to date Height/Weight and BP reading - all of which can be done in reception. You may then collect your prescription 48 hours later. Please note if you have any of the issues mentioned, or you wish to switch to an alternative contractive pill, then you will be required to see the Nurse/GP for a Pill Check prior to obtaining further medication.
