Self Referral for NHS Counselling and Psychology


Binscombe patients, as well as anyone registered in a practice in the Guildford and Waverley area, can now self-refer for psychological therapies including treatments such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Counselling. This is free as part of the NHS and available treatments include face-to-face, telephone or on-line and can be as an individual or part of a group. The service is for adults only, as there is a separate service for people aged under 18, and referral for this is through the GP. Follow this link for more details, and for information about how to refer yourself.

Fear of flying policy - a sedative such as diazepam may seem like a good idea for fear of flying, but current best advice is not to use this. Please read our policy to understand why.
