Your first visit

You'll be greeted by one of our receptionists who will let a member of our assessment team know you have arrived. You'll be offered a cup of tea, coffee or water and invited in to start the assessment process. You don't need to bring anything with you for your first appointment with us.

Our welcome session

When you join our service, we invite everyone to attend a welcome session. This is a brief meeting which gives you information on what to expect from our service and sets you up with your first appointments to begin your journey.
