If you would like to book an assessment appointment to ensure that our therapists are suitable for you please do so by clicking on the button below. Assessments are charged at £10 and this fee is refunded if it is decided that our service is not suitable for you and you are not placed with a therapist.  This booking system is for adult counselling and psychotherapy appointments only.  Please email us directly to discuss assessments for children and young people [under 18].

We are currently experiencing a high number of people accessing our services and therefore our current wait to be placed with a therapist following assessment is approximately 4-8 weeks.

As well as our low cost counselling service that is delivered by volunteers and trainees, we also have highly experienced counsellors and psychotherapists that work from our rooms in private practice. Charges for sessions range from £40-£75. For more information about those therapists in private practice please see our Therapists page.
