Refer Someone Else
Use this form to arrange counselling for somebody else.
Any counselling referrals submitted online between Thursday 30th July and Monday 17th August will not be processed until week commencing Monday 17th August due to availability of counsellors/counselling sessions over the holiday period. Eligible referrals submitted during this period will be dealt with from Monday 17th August but an appointment to see a counsellor may not be available until the following week.
Please note the counselling service at Yorkshire MESMAC cannot respond to crisis emotional / mental health situations.
If you feel you are in need of crisis emotional / mental health support - contact your GP or telephone the Samaritans national support line on 116 123 - their telephone line is open 24/7.
You will receive an automatic message telling you that we have received your request for counselling.
If our service is not appropriate for you, we will try and let you know within two weeks of receiving your request – with some signposting options if available and relevant.
If our service is appropriate for you, we will attempt to match you with a counsellor within two weeks of receiving your request. You will then negotiate your first session with the counsellor.
Please note that these are guidelines, Yorkshire MESMAC counselling service has a restricted budget which is supplemented by donations to our charity from the public. At times of high demand and unplanned absence the indicative times may be exceeded. At these times we would aim to update the website.
