Is there a cost?

For the most vulnerable people in our community, access to counselling services are free, and for those that can contribute, there is a subsidised price per session based on a salary-based sliding-scale.

Costs range from £25 to £45 per session (based on income). There is a limited number of fully-funded places, offering free counselling sessions. For a higher fee, appointments can be accessed on a fast-track basis.
