If you are an employee a counsellor can help you make sense of your situation by identifying problematic emotional and behavioural patterns that may be causing your unhappiness and assist in replacing them with more positive ones. Or it may be that you need to find constructive ways of dealing with a situation that is beyond your personal control. With increased self-awareness and skill, you will be better-equipped to get your needs met without hurting others – or request others treat you with more care and respect.

  • Referral Service

From time to time your counsellor may refer you to another professional for assistance. This could be a General Practitioner if the Counsellor believes your needs require clinical assessment. Or it could be that the complexity of your need requires referral to another specialist service whilst continuing to access support through Northern Frontiers.. Wherever possible referrals are made to free services or those that are within your capacity to pay. 

A fully qualified Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner(FDRP) is available to provide information and mediation services for families experiencing family separation. The FDRP can assist with Parenting Plans and Property Settlement and is qualified under the Family Law Act 1975 to issue Section 601 certificates.
