Do I have to have counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their thoughts, feelings and issues in a confidential and safe environment. Counselling is available for free at Marie Stopes if clients are having other treatment, such as consultation.

Otherwise, counselling at Marie Stopes is a private service. Find out more about our counselling fees.

Counselling is optional as part of your Marie Stopes UK care. It's only a requirement if you're under 16 and seeking abortion treatment.

We recommend that clients’ also consider counselling if:

  • They're seeking female sterilisation and are under 25
  • They're seeking vasectomy and are under 25

Many clients find counselling helps them to make better decisions and deal with their feelings more effectively.

If you'd like to arrange counselling, you can book by calling one of the numbers below. One of counsellors will then call you back at the arranged time to talk. Alternatively, you can book face-to-face counselling at one of our UK clinics that offers this service.

Marie Stopes UK provides a confidential counselling service for women and men relating to a wide range of issues including:
