A notice for our NHS counselling patients

(If you have been referred to our short term counselling service by ELFT)
Dear NHS Counselling Patient, 

If you have been referred to us for NHS counselling, please be aware that, due to high demand for this service, you will be on the waiting list before we are able to offer you an appointment, which we currently estimate is between 10 – 16 weeks.  

If you require more immediate counselling support you have the option to self refer to The Counselling Foundation open ended service, please call 01582 732 450. Please note that the open ended counselling is a paid for service that is low cost, we ask patients to pay what they can afford. (The NHS service is free for patients). Other counselling services in Luton are also available.  

Thank you for your ongoing patience and we are working as hard as we can to ensure that patients are seen as soon as is possible within the scope of this contract with the NHS.
The Counselling Foundation Luton Centre

Luton Centre:

Our Luton Centre provides counselling and counsellor training and serves Luton and surrounding areas, including Dunstable, Caddington, Slip End, Harpenden, Markyate, Flamstead, Studham, Kensworth, Toddington, Barton-le-Clay, Streatly and Kimpton.

We seek to offer a fee structure that is affordable to you and which enables us to provide a sustainable counselling service to everyone within our community. At your first appointment, your counsellor will discuss the appropriate fee level for you, based on what you can reasonably afford.  As a guide, our fees usually range between £15 and £35 per counselling session, although other rates may apply depending on your circumstances. The fee may be reviewed with your counsellor should your circumstances change at any time. It is also our practice to make a small annual increase to fees, in line with inflation.

To access our services in Luton you must be 18 years old.  We also offer counselling services with disabled access in Luton.
