About Project

Please note this service is accessible to anyone aged 18 and above (including those aged over 25).

What is Counselling?

Counselling can help lead to positive change with increased self-confidence, self-esteem and the ability to face the future.

We understand that taking the first step to access counselling can be a big hurdle and we want to make it as easy as possible.

  • Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk about issues affecting your life in a safe and confidential environment.
  • It helps you to explore your thoughts and feelings in order to change behaviours and achieve your goals.

How to access counselling

Everyone who uses our counselling service will be contacted by our counselling team. They'll discuss your needs with you, and arrange a FREE initial assessment. Sessions will take place online via Zoom. Your first step is to complete and return the initial assessment on our website ( and email to


During your assessment, we will talk you through the difference between our counsellors and which one will be most appropriate to work with you. For example, if you present with mild to moderate mental health issues at assessment stage, you’ll have some degree of choice as to what level of counsellor you’ll see (depending on availability). If you present with complex trauma/s, you'll likely be advised to see an experienced counsellor.

We don’t charge for your initial assessment, but we do for the sessions that follow.

Payments must be made at least 24 hours prior to the session and can be made via bank transfer, credit card or PayPal. This will also be explained at assessment.

Our Counselling sessions run for 50 minutes, and the rates are as follows:

  • £20 per session – with a Trainee Placement Counsellor (coming towards the end of their training)
  • £30 per session – with a Qualified Placement Counsellor (qualified and extending their training)
  • £40 per session – with an experienced Freelance Counsellor

Our counsellors are qualified to (at least), or working towards, a Diploma in Counselling (Level 4). They all work within their own ethical framework of the organisation of which they are a member, including the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the National Counselling Society.
