How much does it cost?

As a Community Interest Company our mission is to continue to try to provide affordable counselling options

We understand that counselling is a significant financial commitment each week, so we operate a sliding fee scale to try and ensure counselling is accessible to as many people within our local community as possible.

As a Community Interest Company our mission is to continue to try to provide affordable counselling options to our local residents, particularly to those on lower incomes, so we trust our clients to be honest with us regarding their income levels.  We rely solely on client fees and our contract work to keep our service running and we are required to register for VAT.

For clients who start counselling with us and are struggling financially – we operate a Hardship Fund to help you remain in counselling with us which can support your counselling to continue for a fixed period, once you have begun and remained in therapy with us.
