Counselling Service in Primary Care

The Primary Care Counselling Service provides brief focussed counselling, extended counselling, and IPT for clients referred by their GP with low mood, depression and associated anxiety. Counsellors can also provide information and links to other primary care and third sector services.

The Primary Care Counselling Service is managed from a base at CRI, Cardiff. The service is a “Digital First” service meaning you will be offered a digital (video) appointment using the Attend Anywhere platform. Telephone appointments are sometimes agreed, and face-to-face appointments may still be available if there is a demonstrable need for this. If you wish to access counselling, please discuss the appropriateness of a referral with your GP.
