Referrals to specialists and services
Sometimes your counsellor may consider that another professional would be better able to help you. In such cases, a referral to another counsellor or to an external professional or agency, will be suggested. The counsellor will assist you with this process.
Examples of a specialist service might include referral to:
- A private psychologist, psychiatrist or general practitioner
- Referral to a specialist mental health service
- Referral for testing for a learning disability
