As a charity dedicated to supporting relationships in crisis we retain a not for profit business model, returning any surplus into bursary funding for those unable to meet the current charges.  We have to charge to cover our overheads and each session costs significantly more than the fee you’re charged,  typical prices are:
£51 for an evening appointment
£46 for a daytime appointment
£56 for Sex Therapy
£56 for Therapeutic Mediation
£46 for Young People’s Counselling.

If you think you’ll find it difficult to pay, you may be able to access our bursary scheme, and we can discuss this with you when you speak to our our inquiries team.
