Cost details
Each counselling session costs over £50/hr to provide so we look to our clients to make donations towards these costs. We do not make a profit from our services and will never turn away anyone who is unable to pay. Some clients will be able to donate more than others and we recognise this. Following the initial assessment
if you decide to proceed
the counsellor will ask you to consider the amount that you can donate in respect of counselling sessions. The amount can be re-negotiated as necessary taking into account changes in circumstances.
