We aim to offer you an initial one-hour consultation with a counsellor within a week.

It is an opportunity to explore with a counsellor whether counselling could be beneficial for you at this time, to find out more about the process and to ask questions.

If you choose to go ahead, we then work hard to match you to the right therapist for ongoing counselling and to keep any wait to a minimum. There is sometimes a delay before regular counselling can be offered; this depends on your availability and that of an appropriate counsellor.

Counselling may be short or long term, depending on what you and your counsellor decide.


The recommended contribution for an initial consultation, and ongoing one hour sessions, is £45. We realise that for some this is more than they can afford, so the contribution is negotiable. We will talk about this at your initial consultation.
