Terrence Higgin Trust counselling services offers up to 12 individual or couples sessions to gay and bisexual men across a range of sites in London. Given the diverse population sessions are offered in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German. Each new client is assessed to gauge if their needs can be met by the service or if they might benefit more from another service or a groupwork programme instead, Counsellors use CORE to measure changes in clients levels of need by comparing pre and post intervention self-report psychological well-being scores. These are used, along with the practitioner's assessment, as a marker for intervention efficacy. More recently, the service has trialed methods for providing counselling to more marginalised MSM, including an online counselling service.
