Covid-19 update: the counselling service, including assessments, are still running online and via telephone, with some capacity for face-to-face sessions. New referrals will be accepted but the usual waiting times apply and emails will be replied to within 10 working days. There is currently an approximate 4-6 month waiting list on the low-cost daytime service and a 2-4 week waiting list for the evening and weekend service.
At Mind in Haringey, we do not offer a free counselling service, although low-cost daytime sessions are available. Whilst we try to make our counselling service as accessible as possible, it is an incredibly busy service and there can be significant waiting times, up to approximately 6 months. It’s likely that if you are flexible with your own availability, waiting times may be shorter.
Who can access counselling at MIH?
The counselling service can be accessed by both Haringey residents and those from all neighbouring boroughs. Individuals over 18 years old can self refer and we welcome many service users who have been referred to us from external sources such as GPs, IAPT and care homes.
