How much will it cost?

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.
