How to make a referral

Any Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset or Wiltshire agency may refer to the Family Counselling Trust service

These agencies may include GPs, Schools, Paediatricians, CAMHS, Children’s Centres as well as other VCS partners. There is a standard referral form that needs to be completed.

We are open to referrals mostly for remote working

In some circumstances it may be possible to have face to face sessions provided everyone follows the latest government guidance and social distancing is observed. However, we are open mainly to referrals that are suitable for remote working either by telephone, digital or online video platforms. We have advised practitioners as to training and safeguarding precautions for remote working which will only be available for certain children and families following an assessment and at the discretion of our therapists.

Please apply in the usual way using our online referral forms below.

Therapy sessions will not be recorded by the FCT –  in return it is expected that families will behave with corresponding respect and likewise not record them.

Please note that all referrals must meet our criteria ( see  ‘How We can Help’ ), and provision of counselling is subject to availability of funds at the time of application.
