Using Our Service
Getting in touchIf you are interested in knowing more about our service, finding out whether it might meet your needs or simply to make an initial appointment, please call us on
We appreciate that leaving messages for you or speaking to those you live with may not be appropriate so please let us know if this is the case.
When we talk to you we will make sure that we are aware of and are able to meet any special requirements that you may have.
What happens nextYou will be invited to come to an initial, extended appointment (90 minutes) which gives you and ourselves the opportunity to discuss what has drawn you to counselling and what we may be able to offer.
If we feel that the counselling we offer would not meet your needs we will suggest and discuss alternatives including other services that may be more suitable.
It is central to our purpose and our charitable status that we offer counselling that is affordable.
Affordability is, of course, a very personal matter and the fee or contribution you pay week by week will be discussed and agreed during the initial appointment.
Our minimum contribution is £10 per session for those on benefits rising to £40 for those on higher incomes.
There is a standard registration fee of £15 payable prior to the initial appointment and a further fee of £25 when you come (£15 for those on benefits).
