Appointment times

The Simeon Centre runs an appointments system. There is no facility to ‘drop-in’ and see a counsellor without making an advance appointment.

We have a range of face-to-face, telephone and webcam appointments to suit most people. The table below shows times when appointments are scheduled.

How long will I have to wait?

Our waiting list is managed by 1point - Bolton's Psychological Health and Wellbeing Alliance. Their aim is to offer an initial appointment to everyone within 28 days of receiving a request for support. During busy periods you may have to wait a little longer. As a therapist becomes free we have to match them with a person who is available at that time on the same day each week. In an effort to keep waiting times to a minimum for everyone we offer each person up to 10 sessions with their therapist.

Expanding our service and hours

At the Simeon Centre we’re always looking for ways to improve and expand our service to the community. Each week we schedule around 80 talking therapy sessions and we would like to increase the number of sessions we offer.
