How do I make an appointment at the Drum, Lift or Platform?

You can contact us by calling the Brandon Centre on 02072674792 asking to speak to one of the counselling coordinators. Alternatively, you can email us at counselling@brandoncentre.org.uk. We will need to take a few details from you and then we will put you on our waiting list. Alternatively, you can be referred by someone else, for instance your GP.

The waiting time for an appointment varies, but we will contact you when we have one available at a time that is suitable for you.

Consultation service for parents

We also provide a consultation service for parents and carers who need help with a teenager or young adult who is experiencing problems.

What if more help is needed than the Drum, Lift or Platform can provide?

Sometimes it might be necessary to refer you to another type of service in order to get the right type of help for you. We would always discuss this with you first and ask for your permission.

An overview of our service at the Drum, Lift or Platform can be found in this information leaflet
