Help Counselling Centre, London
Help's aim is to provide high-quality, affordable counselling to anyone living in the Greater London area. We want to make your contribution manageable and counselling affordable.
Help offers one-to-one weekly counselling. Your appointment will be at the same time each week and all sessions are 50 minutes long.
We offer up to 200 sessions per week during the following times:
The waiting time for day slots is approximately 2–3 weeks and for evenings, it is 4–8 weeks. Sometimes, it is possible to find an appointment more quickly.
Your first appointment will be an assessment. This will help us to get an overview of your situation and to determine whether counselling at Help is right for you. It is also a time for you to assess if you want to take up counselling.
If counselling at Help is suitable for you, we offer a six-session contract to start. Longer-term work is available but not guaranteed.

Member organisations *
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
