The Foundation is a ‘not for profit’ organisation, a charity whose aim is to make counselling  accessible to all in our community. Open Ended  therapy is the service which is eligible for the Foundation’s charitable support – we ask you to pay what you can reasonably afford towards our costs and this aspect is discussed with you at the first meeting. We ask for an initial payment for an assessment carried out by an experienced counsellor who will discuss suitability for counselling. Our other services are not subsidised and have a set fee. The Counselling Foundation’s fees are reviewed annually.

You may be able to access counselling at no cost to you via your GP and the NHS. Your GP will be able to advise you on what is available to you. Please visit our NHS Short Term Counselling page.

Please contact us to discuss any questions you may have.
