How Do I Prepare For My Counselling
Session ?

You should be alone in a quiet space where you will be free from interruption, some suggestions might be to lock pets out of the room, ask a partner to take children out for some exercise, or if you're a single parent finding a movie or show that will keep the kids entertained long enough to make time for you

Will The Tannahill Centre or My Doctor Know I've Attended ?

No, Lifelink is a private counselling service and will not appear on your medical records.

Lifelink will not disclose to The Tannahill Centre who has accessed the counselling service from Ferguslie Park

Is The Service Confidential ?

Confidentiality will be maintained by Lifelink. In exceptional circumstances where the person attending counselling is at risk of harm to themselves or others, and is unwilling to remove this risk Lifelink may need to break confidentiality to protect them or others
