Child Counseling
Youth Counseling
NCPS is not a crisis service.  If you are worried that a child may be at risk of harm you can contact the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000. If the risk is urgent you will need to call the emergency services. If you have urgent concerns regarding your child's, or your own mental health then please call your GP asking for an emergency appointment. If 'out of hours' please call 111, or attend your local Accident and Emergency department.

If you feel your life is at immediate risk then call 999 for an ambulance or go straight to your local A&E department. If you can't do this by yourself, ask someone to help you. Mental health emergencies are serious. You're not wasting anyone's time!
