About us

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:

10:00am–8:30pm Monday–Friday,

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.
