The Moira Anderson Foundation accepts referrals from Statutory and Voluntary organisations as well as self-referrals. You can make a referral by phone, email or by post. The information we would require in the first instance are details such as the clients name, address, basic background information etc. We can then arrange an appointment for the client or parent/guardian to come into the centre and meet with our Client Support Worker. This appointment can be arranged either through yourself or directly with the client. When the client or parent/guardian comes into the centre to meet with the Client Support Worker, they will be advised of the support available to them. This could be Person Centred Counselling or Thoughtfield Therapy and Youth Counselling or Play Therapy, depending on the age of the client. This will allow the client or parent/guardian to make an informed decision about their support, it will also give the client or parent/guardian the opportunity to discuss any worries of concerns they may have.
For adults, we offer eight sessions of counselling/therapy, this may be extended after a review between the client and counsellor/therapist. For children the support we offer is open ended. The therapist will review progress regularly and the sessions will continue for as long as the therapist, child and parent/guardian feel it is beneficial.
We operate a waiting list for the therapies, on-going support with our Client Support Worker is available until an appointment for counselling/therapy becomes available.
There is no cost to the client involved for the therapy provided, however, if an appointment has to be cancelled, we request at least 24 hours’ notice, otherwise the Foundation incurs a cost.
