Referral form for counselling and art therapy group 

Due to high demand, we are not accepting new referrals at this time.

We will re-open our referral list as soon as we are able to.

TFSW offers refugees and asylum seekers free, specialised, long-term psychotherapy and counselling in Bristol. Unfortunately, we are not currently able to accept referrals for clients in Bath or anywhere else in the South West.

Please note, although we do our best to see clients for an initial session soon after referral, we do have a waiting list and are not a front-line crisis service.  


We try to be as accessible as possible; we provide interpreters and can see clients both in person and remotely. 

We only take third party referrals from:

  • 1625 Independent People

  • ABC  

  • BHN 

  • Borderlands  

  • Brigstowe  

  • Bristol Refugee Rights  

  • British Red Cross - Bristol Refugee Service

  • NHS Talking Therapies  

  • NRPF & Asylum Team BCC

  • Refugee Women of Bristol  

  • SARI 

  • The Haven  

  • The Hope Service  

  • Unseen  

  • Womankind  


Please refer to the criteria for referral held by your link worker for TFSW before completing the form below. If you are not a referral partner, please first refer to one of the organisations above, who will then be able to refer on to us. 

If you have any queries, please email Clinical Director Katherine Cox at / 07762 165324.
