This is Our Address: 1A Argyll Street, Stoke, Coventry CV2 4FJ
Telephone: 02476 440095
Please complete the short registration form, as below. Completing these details helps us with our Administration and gives us your contact details and availability so we can arrange an appointment for you as soon as possible.
Before completing this form, please ensure you read and accept the terms as listed below:
- If you are completing this form on behalf of someone else, ensure you obtain their approval to enter their details here and inform them of the other information here. Please also enter your own details where indicated.
- You will be expected to respond promptly to phone calls and/or text messages regarding appointments. If you do not respond to three attempts at contacting you, your records will be closed and we will not contact you again.
- Due to a high demand for our services, if you do not attend your first appointment without giving at least 12 hrs notice, we will close your records and will not contact you again. This may also apply to ongoing appointments, at the discretion of the counsellor/management.
- Your personal information is important to us. Please read the Light House Data Protection Policy and ensure you accept its policies before entering your data into this form. This policy will be further explained to you when you visit the Light House.
[NB – please do NOT use this form for general enquiries about Training our other information, there is a separate form for this – please click HERE ]
Note also that we do try and see you for an Initial Assessment within 4 weeks, but we are experiencing a very heavy demand for our services at present so our waiting list is significant and you may have a wait longer than this before we have someone available to see you. Those who are most flexible about their availability are likely to have a shorter wait than those who have restricted availability. Please be patient!

What Happens next?
Once you are registered, you will be contacted by one of our Admin staff to arrange an appointment. The first appointment is called an ‘Initial Assessment’. At this meeting we will chat to you to find out about you and discuss your needs for counselling. In some circumstances we may ask you to allow us to talk to your medical/psychiatric practitioner if appropriate and relevant. When the Initial Assessment has been completed, and counselling has been agreed as an appropriate help for you, you will be allocated to a counsellor as soon as one becomes available.
Privacy of your information
Voluntary donations from clients help support our work, and although we do not turn people away if they cannot afford to make a donation, this will be discussed during your Initial assessment meeting and you will be encouraged to give as you are able at each session. Normal appointments are available between 8.30am and 5pm; a limited number of ‘out of hours’ appointments are available but are subject to a minimum donation of £30 per session.
We do receive gifts from other supporters, but we are always grateful for donations to support clients who are unable to afford any donations to the work.
