Waterloo Community Counselling & COVID-19

Please read this letter from the Director of Waterloo Community Counselling

Dear referrer,

I am writing to let you know that WCC is still taking referrals despite our office closure due to Covid.

We work remotely to support our counselling staff who are providing both telephone and on line counselling.

Individuals can contact us to book an initial telephone/on line assessment. Our waiting times vary around 1-2 weeks for assessment and 6-10 weeks thereafter to starting sessions. We operate a sliding scale of charges (further details here).

We anticipate that many people may be seeking psychological support during and after the initial Covid lockdown. We are working with funders to maintain and develop our service to reach more people and to offer increased access to low fee counselling/therapy.

Our Multi-Ethnic Counselling Service remains open for residents of Lambeth and Southwark who require language counselling. Language counselling is also available to Refugees and Asylum-seekers across London funded by a number of charitable trusts.

Please do contact us if you would like to make a referral or please pass on our details. Our website provides a lot of relevant information.

Kind regards,

Chris Robinson, 7th May 2020.
