You will not be judged or given advice.  Counselling is about helping you to develop insights into your problems and finding your own resources and strengths.  It is about helping you to make your own choices and decisions and to take responsibility for your own life.
The service is confidential and your counsellor will explain to you exactly what this means and can answer any questions you may have about this.  Your contact details are kept securely and are not available to anyone other than Centre staff.

We will never turn anyone away for financial reasons; however, we are a registered charity and we support ourselves from the money you pay.  
The full fee per session is £34.00 for individual counselling.  In the daytime there are a limited number of slots available for those unable to pay at least £15 per session (see below).  In the evening there are a limited number of slots available for a reduced fee of not less than £25 for individuals. Please note that there is currently a long wait for evening slots. There is a fee of £10 for the initial exploratory session, please let us know if you can't manage that much.
If you need to negotiate your fee, this will be discussed at your initial exploratory session.    Think about what you are able to afford, and also what value you are putting on yourself and your counselling.  There is further guidance to help you in our Information Sheet. Your fee will help us to continue to offer our service to others in need.  If your circumstances change you will need to discuss this with your counsellor.
For clients coming in the daytime, if you are on benefits or a low income, and cannot afford to pay at least £15 per session, you can apply for a bursary to supplement the amount you can afford. If you need to apply for a bursary, please let us know at the initial session.  In order to make sure we continue to help those in need, we will review the funding that is available on a regular basis.
