If you're on the waiting list to join an NHS counselling service, or if you have been told by your doctor to see a therapist, we recommend that you do not register with another service while you are waiting to be seen by a professional. This includes services such as the King’s Counselling and Mental Health Support Team

Registering with two different counsellors/therapists at the same time can be stressful and can be hard to manage, especially alongside your studies.

If you find that you have been on the waiting list to see a counsellor or a therapist for a long period of time, we recommend that you contact your doctor or the receptionist at your practice and ask if it can be possible to be seen by a therapist sooner.
