The counselling service at the LJMC

How do I book for a counselling session?

You can access the counselling service by:

  • Phoning the LJMC Helpline (020 3826 2555) and referring yourself
  • Dropping in to the LJMC and speaking to a member of staff
  • A member of your healthcare team can refer you

What happens next?

Following referral, you will be invited for an initial assessment session to talk through your concerns and together decide how counselling may help.

You will be offered six weekly counselling sessions. These will usually be at the same time each week with the same counsellor. Each session will last about 50 minutes.

The team

The counsellors who work at the LJMC are highly trained and experienced in working with people with cancer. 

Counsellors work to the codes of ethics and practice of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy or the British Psychological Society. 

What does counselling cost? 

All LJMC services are offered free of charge to NHS patients under the care of an oncologist based at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre. 

Private patients having treatment at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre may also be eligible to use our services. Please call the Helpline for details.
