No Fee Clients

Open Counselling Therapists will work out a number of 'goodwill' sessions that they can afford to offer without charging, per month.  Often, a Therapist will see two clients per week for free.

However, the waiting lists for these appointments are considerably long. Please contact us here for more information

Reduced Rate

Open Counselling also offers a limited number of ‘reduced rate’ sessions for individuals on benefits and low incomes, these spaces are limited which increases waiting list duration.  Please contact us here for more information

Fees, Opening Hours & Methods of Payment

Fees for Counselling and Psychotherapy 

We will discuss your needs in the first session and then agree how best to help you.

Open Counselling fees are as follows:

The first consultation is always £20 for 30 minutes.

This allows you to outline your problem or situation and gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

We can discuss the type of therapy programme that is likely to be the most beneficial for you.

This session is completely without obligation because what is most important is to ensure that Open Counselling is right to deal with your very specific requirements.
