Need help right now?

Courage Therapies is not able to provide urgent crisis support outside of pre-booked appointment times.

If you feel that you need urgent support, you may call, email or text for an urgent appointment, however availability is not guaranteed and due to the nature of the work, it may take several hours before I am able to respond to any such request.

However, I appreciate that life does not fit neatly into appointment slots, so I have compiled a list of organisations that may be able to help in times of crisis. It may be helpful to share this list with a friend or relative so that they are also able to support you should you need it.

If you feel that your life is at risk, whether that is feeling suicidal or being threatened by someone else, call 999 immediately, or go straight to A&E.
