Scottish Government advice now allows face-to-face appointments with guidelines in place. We use counselling rooms that are either used by NHS services or are owned by other organisations, and these are not available for us to use yet.
We continue to offer telephone counselling as well as Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime appointments for both individuals and couples. To do this, please click on the Appointment Form link.
If you feel that you would rather wait for a face-to-face appointment, do let us know by phone or email. We will keep you updated, and put you on our list, ready for when the situation changes.

To arrange Telephone or on-line appointments please use the form below, and we will respond as soon as possible. You may also email us directly or call us, if you prefer.
We have counsellors throughout Argyll and offer appointments at a variety of times and venues depending on your location. Our coordinator will be happy to discuss your requirements & arrange an appointment to suit.
We will send or e-mail guidance to make sure you get the best out of telephone or on-line appointments.
Occasionally we have a waiting list if our counsellors are particularly busy. If this is the case we will let you know how long you will need to wait, and we will keep in touch. Telephone and on-line appointments can usually be arranged very quickly, however. Subsequent appointments will be agreed directly between you and your counsellor.
Please call 0300 111 0031 if you need to cancel an appointment. Remember our counsellors often need to travel to a venue, and so as much notice as possible is required.
COUNSELLORS IN TRAINING
A small number of our counsellors are "in-training". They are established qualified individual counsellors of many years standing. They have successfully completed Relationships Scotland’s Certificate in Couple Counselling and are working towards couple counselling accreditation by completing additional clinical practice counselling hours. They are also assessed as competent to practice by Relationships Scotland. If you only want to see an accredited counsellor, let us know.
