Counsellors

Primary Care Counsellors


 


Primary care counselling sessions tend to be brief – between 6 to 12 appointments – and deal with a specific problem or issue. A GP will generally refer patients, to a counsellor, if they are suffering from stress, depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue or relationship issues. It also provides the patients with bereavement counselling and palliative care.


 


Behavioural counselling is also available from a general practice, and can help adults overcome a number of medical problems and concerns.


Practitioners will recommend counselling to patients they feel will benefit from this form of supportive assistance. Patients requiring support because of complex social problems, a history of trauma or severe depression will be referred to a psychotherapist or community mental health team.

Gina provides counselling services for the practice's patients through cognitive behavioural therapy. She holds regular one to one sessions at Pengam Green & Cardiff Royal Infirmary surgeries.
