How to access our FREE counselling service:

If you or someone you know needs support, you can access Savana’s service by submitting our self referral form or professional referral form.

Once we receive your referral, a member of the services team will then be intouch to book an Initial Options Appointment (IOA).  At this appointment you will discuss what options and services are available through Savana. Afterward, you will be added to our counselling waiting list. Following a short wait, you will start your sessions as soon as a counsellor becomes available.
