Refer Someone Else

Use this form to arrange counselling for somebody else.

Please note the counselling service at Yorkshire MESMAC cannot respond to crisis emotional / mental health situations over the Christmas and New Year period.

If you feel you are in need of crisis emotional / mental health support - contact your GP or the national support line of the Samaritans Tel:116 123 - their telephone line is open 24/7.

Over the Christmas and New Year period, any counselling referrals submitted online  will not be processed between Wednesday 19th December and Monday 7th January 2019.  Eligible referrals submitted during this period will be dealt with week commencing 7/1/18 but an appointment to see a counsellor may not be available until the following week. 

Remember, our counselling services are only available in Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield.

This is so that we know we are providing a full service across the whole of the West & North Yorkshire region covered by Yorkshire MESMAC.

If they are a Leeds, Bradford or Wakefield resident, we might ask them to travel to one of the other two cities depending on counsellor availability.

Depending on counsellor availability in certain areas, we may not have a choice in this regard, but if we do we will always take your preference into consideration.

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.
