Counselling Services

Initial Assessment

If you are interested in counselling with us, we will ask you to come in for an initial assessment. This is so we can begin to understand some of the difficulties you are having and to help you decide whether proceeding with counselling is the best thing for you.

During a typical weekly session lasting 50 minutes, you will be able to speak about whatever comes up. The counsellor will help look for links and patterns in what you tell them, and together you can start to allow your own solutions to emerge.


Counselling sessions are strictly confidential. If something arises in your sessions which suggests a danger to either yourself, or to others, your counsellor may need to consider disclosure. This would be discussed between you in the sessions

Assessment £50.00 flat fee, paid in advance

If you cannot make your assessment appointment, you need to give us at least 3 working day notice to avoid us incurring costs and charging you the full fee.

Fee for regular counselling starts from £40 per session and it’s calculated on the basis of your annual income.

You will pay a £1 for each thousand of your annual income, plus £10.

For example, if you earn £35,000 per year, your fee per session will be £35 plus £10 equals £45 weekly.

We offer a limited number of low fee places available under our bursary scheme. These fees vary between £15 – £39.
