Referral Form

We offer an easy referral process for those wishing to talk

At Insight we understand that it quite often takes courage to make that first step towards speaking with a counsellor. Your first appointment is an opportunity for you to consider whether counselling is for you.

The five minute referral form

  1. Get familiar with our process and what is required for referral.
  2. Enter your personal details in the first section. Don’t worry, this is kept strictly confidential and won’t be shared with anyone other than your assigned counsellor.
  3. Select your preferred location and share your availability and best times for us to get in touch with you.
  4. Let us know if you would prefer to talk to us by video call or over the telephone.
  5. Tell us as much as you’re comfortable to share about why you would like to speak to a counsellor. There is no wrong answer here and any information you can share will help us identify the best counsellor for you.
  6. Submit the referral form online. We will get in touch should we need more information.
What you need to fill out this form
  1. Five minutes of your time
  2. The details of your GP or Doctor, including their address
  3. Details about your availability from Monday to Friday
  4. You must reside, or be registered at a GP or Doctor, within the DD1 to DD11 postcode area. If you are outside this area please contact us as we may still be able to help.
