Re-Vision offers access to high quality, affordable counselling within our low-cost service based in Queens Park. The service is available to those who are low-paid, unwaged or receiving benefits.
It may also be suitable for counselling students at certain levels of training.
When you telephone our centre a trained administrator will take brief details from you. These will be passed to our Service Coordinator who will contact you to arrange an initial meeting. This meeting aims to explore why you are looking for therapy at this time and what you are hoping for from attending and answer any questions you may have about the service or the process of therapy. This will help us to find out whether the low-cost service is appropriate for you and, if so, we will then identify a suitable counsellor for you and make arrangements for your appointments. All information will be treated in strict confidence.
Training, qualifications & experience
The service is staffed by recently qualified graduates or counsellors-in-training on our BACP accredited Counselling Diploma and other quality trainings. All counsellors are fully supervised and carry professional insurance.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

There is a fee of £20 for the initial meeting and the cost for ongoing sessions is on a sliding scale from £10 - £35 dependant on your income and circumstances, all of which can be discussed at the initial meeting.
Concessions offered for
All sessions usually take place at our premises close to Queens's Park tube and railway station in North West London, not far from Kilburn. However, since the recent lockdown, we are offering all our sessions either online or on the phone.
Appointments will generally be scheduled at the same time on the same day each week and last for 50 minutes. Due to the high demand for low-cost counselling, there will normally be a limit to the number of sessions available.
