Supporting the Mental Health of residents in Lewisham

One-to-one Signposting

Signposting is delivered through the Relate Hub (Relate don’t just do relationship counselling), and can be accessed without seeing the GP:

You may be referred to the Relate Hub Team by your GP or you can self-refer. This service offers a 30 minute one-to-one telephone consultation with a trained counsellor who will guide you to the best support available for your needs.

One-to-One Counselling

The Relate Hub Team may refer directly you to the Relate Counselling service Relate team or The Awareness Centre (TAC). In both cases they will go through the Relate Hub. If someone goes into Relate counselling, that will be organised via the Hub (as it is all the same organisation).

The Awareness Centre :

Referrals for counselling with TAC will be sent from the Relate Hub Team to One Health Lewisham (OHL) and then either OHL will notify TAC directly or it will be entered electronically into your patient notes and TAC will be notified through EMIS Health (Egton Medical Information Systems) the electronic patient record systems and software used by your GP.

This service is one-to-one short term counselling (up to 6 sessions) via video call

If you are referred, TAC will contact you directly to organise an appointment. If you do not hear from them within 5 days being advised of your referral , please contact:
