Facing an unplanned pregnancy can evoke a huge range of emotions, and some people may experience feelings ranging from elation to panic or even despair. At Choices Aberdeen our team provide a safe place for people to talk over their feelings and consider their options.
“When faced with a tough decision, I turned to Choices who provided me with someone to listen to me and helped me to talk through my problem. Choices are a worthwhile organisation when you feel you have nowhere to turn. I never felt judged or that I was being a burden. I think without the knowledge that such a service was available I would have felt so alone trying to deal with a huge decision. I would urge anyone who is facing a dilemma or tough choice like this to pick up the phone.”
“Speaking to Choices gave me a precious opportunity to talk about my fears and insecurities, and gather my thoughts.”
In this calm and confidential environment, our team are able to assist clients to see through the fog and confusion, giving them the opportunity to consider their options.
Appointments are available daytimes, evenings and weekends and sessions last around 50 minutes. Due to the nature of pregnancy crisis we do not have a waiting list for this service and clients should expect to be seen very soon when requesting an appointment. Appointments are free of charge.
Clients are welcome to attend sessions alone or accompanied by their partners, family or friends.
We are also to provide telephone consultations if that is more suitable for the particular client.
For those who would prefer to receive counselling online, Choices are now offering this service. Find out more about our online counselling service here.
Choices Aberdeen also provides a free pregnancy testing service.
Please note that Choices are not a medical centre and cannot provide abortion services. Termination of pregnancy can only be provided by the NHS in Scotland. Referral for termination of pregnancy is available in Aberdeen via your GP or at the Family Planning Clinic:
