Sessions continue for as long as the client needs it, but sometimes people are looking for short term support during a difficult period.
You do not have to be a Christian or practising any faith to access our service. All of our counsellors are experienced in working with people from a very wide spectrum of faith backgrounds and those who practice no faith.
Our service operates between 9am and 5pm, Mondays to Fridays.
How Can I Access The Service?
Ring our office on 020 8688 0251 and ask for an appointment. At that point you do not need to say anything about why you want to come for counselling or share any personal details beyond your name and a contact telephone number. Alternatively you can email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details.
A counsellor will ring you back to give you a time and date for an assessment. An assessment costs £10.00 and is an initial conversation that might last just 30 minutes to enable us to match you to one of the counselling team. It will not necessarily be with the counsellor you see for regular sessions.
A fee is charged for the sessions and our normal fee is currently £35.00 a session.
A session lasts an hour, unless the client has made a different agreement with the counsellor.
We want our service to be accessible to those who cannot afford the full fee – for instance those on low incomes or dependent on benefits – so we have some sessions available at reduced rates.
You will be asked to pay for your counselling before each session starts.
