From July 1st to October 1st 2022 we are not taking any new referrals into our Adult Counselling Service.

STARS Dorset have been successful in winning a contract to allow us to continue our Counselling work for individuals impacted by Sexual Trauma. 

The Adult Counselling Service needs to move into a period of consolidation and change and we therefore need to put a hold on any new referrals into the Adult Counselling Service.  This time will allow us to mobilise the new contract and embed it into our service.  This needs to be done to ensure that we meet our contractual obligations.

Please be aware that all the other STARS Dorset Services remain open as normal, it is only the Adult Counselling Service that is closing at this time.  We are still able to take referrals for our Children and Young People’s Services (Counselling and ISVA) and our Adult ISVA Services.

Our counsellors will continue to see clients as usual and our assessment team will continue assessing people into the service during these three months. If you want to discuss any of this further please contact one of the team on our main office number on 01202 308 840.
