Low Cost Counselling

As part of our commitment to invest in the development of the therapeutic community, each year we hand select a small number of students to train with us at the centre. The students provide therapy to individuals as part of our low-cost counselling service whilst under supervision of the team. This can be an opportunity for people from the local community to receive a high level of therapeutic support for a very low-cost fee. As well as providing the students with the opportunity to develop professionally.

About our Low Cost Therapy

We believe that everybody should have equal access to effective psychological therapies. We therefor offer a low-cost counselling service. Anyone can request to be referred to this service, it is not means tested. All students will be members of credible professional associations such as the BACP, BPC, UKCP or HCPC. Students will be signed off as fit to practice by their university and hold insurance and DBS certificates. We expect all our students to always adhere to our ethical framework and all work is supervised by our team.

We Do It

Our centre offers a unique space in which you are invited to speak about anything that has been gone on in your life in a free and open way.

We help you gain a different perspective on your life. Most importantly, it’s about becoming more comfortable with yourself.

We do this by helping you overcome issues that you feel are holding you back and ultimately making your head a more peaceful place to live.


This can help you see your current situation in a new, more positive, light. We help give you the tools to approach life with depth and clarity.

As you spend time with us you will change old and unhelpful perspectives about yourself. We introduce new and better feelings towards all the facets of yourself.

We want to help you make positive, profound and longer terms changes. We hope these changes last a life time.
