Frequently Asked Questions

When are you open?
We offer an appointment only service and therefore please call the centre and we will arrange a convenient time to talk to a practitioner.

Do I have to come to your Centre?
No, if you are unable to get to the Centre you can call us during our opening times and we will discuss your needs over the phone and undertake telephone counselling if necessary.

Will you tell me not to have a termination?
No, we are not here to tell you what you should or shouldn’t do but to help support you to make an informed decision about the pregnancy for yourself. We will listen and support you in a non judgemental way regardless of the decision you make. Please note that the Centre is not a medical facility but a counselling service and therefore we are unable to directly refer women for a termination.  

How do I get a Chlamydia test?
If you are between the ages of 13 – 25 years then you can come to the Centre during our opening hours and provide a urine sample, this is then sent to the laboratories for testing. Results are received direct to yourself within 10 days.

Will you tell my parents?
Providing you are over 13 years old (and appear able to understand the information provided) and are not disclosing any abuse then your parents will not be informed about your visit. We can discuss relationship concerns at the Centre should you wish.
