Respect for All Services

We offer counselling services to autistic and or learning disabled people and couples and their families and carers who live in Greater Manchester. 

Our counselling sessions mostly take place online or on the telephone. 

We are funded by the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership and also directly by the Mental Health Teams within the boroughs of Greater Manchester via a referral from a GP.


Our services are all listed below.

Please Note:  Due to high demand for our counselling services and current waiting times of over 6 months, we are currently not accepting any new referrals at this time.  Please check back in with us periodically via the website for further updates.

If you have recently made a referral, please bear with us and we will in touch with you as soon as possible.

Counselling Service

12 x 1 hour sessions

In order to access our main Counselling Service, we will need your GP to make a referral on your behalf to your local mental health services commissioner for funding.  We will guide you through this process every step of the way and until funding is secured, we may be able to offer you support through our Initial Support Service.
