Currently Closed to New Requests

Unfortunately, the PF is not able to accept new Requests for counselling at the moment.

We recently opened our waiting list and received 150 requests in one day. This was an exceptionally high number of new counselling requests, and the first time we have ever been quite so overwhelmed. It will take us a few months to offer counselling to all these new clients. Regrettably, therefore, we are again not accepting new requests.  We will make an announcement here as soon as we are able to re-open to new clients again.

If you have previously registered your interest with us, but have not been able to submit a request, you will have to register again to receive the next notification.

You can find details of other agencies and services on the Resources pages of this website.  These pages also give links to online self-help resources and guidance which can be very useful to some clients considering counselling.

Demand for our service is high and our capacity and resources are limited.  By managing the flow of new requests for counselling, we reduce the waiting time you have to endure before you start counselling, after you have sent your request.  It is deeply regrettable to have to turn people away, but the aim is to improve the service in the long run.

We are sorry to have to do this, and will reopen for Requests as soon as possible.  You can register your interest, or follow our Facebook and Twitter pages, to be sure to get any new announcements.
