We are an independent self-funded charity – our aim is to make counselling affordable  – we operate a sliding scale of fees – this is explained in full during your initial assessment appointment.

Initial Assessment

A fee of £55 is payable at time of booking for the initial assessment – we offer fee concessions for anyone finding this amount difficult due to low income, unemployment or other financial hardship.

Counselling Fees

Weekly counselling fees are explained and discussed with you during the initial assessment.

Session fees are agreed between you and your counsellor in your first counselling session. You will be asked to pay what you can realistically afford.

We operate a sliding scale of fees from £15 to £50 per session

Fees are normally paid via standing order or direct bank transfer. If these payment methods are not available for you, your counsellor will agree an alternative.

Private Health Insurance

We cannot guarantee that private health insurance will cover our fees as many insurers only cover a limited number of sessions. There may also be a requirement for you to see a BACP accredited counsellor, rather than a BACP accredited service. We can explore the options with you.
