Making your first call to us may feel daunting, but we offer a friendly, sensitive, confidential service to the many people who seek our help. We will arrange for you to attend an assessment meeting with one of our psychotherapists, often within a few days. The assessment process is important. You may be talking about behaviour that you have kept hidden for a long time and about which you may feel a profound sense of shame. In our experience, this initial meeting can be containing and provide you with, perhaps for the first time, the hope that you can move out of the isolation of addiction and compulsivity. Our assessment process is thorough and focused, and allows us to determine what programme of therapy best suits your needs and resources.
