About us

Richmond AID’s Counselling Service offers a calm, confidential space for you to talk though your emotional needs and difficulties. We welcome anyone in the community over the age of 18 years, including those with long term health conditions, disabilities, complex mental health needs and caring responsibilities.

Our therapists offer one to one sessions, drawing from a broad range of therapeutic backgrounds.

All our therapists work within the ethical framework of their professional organisational body such as the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), or the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

What is the process?

After you get in touch we will arrange an initial assessment, this costs £35. It is an opportunity for us to understand your hopes for therapy and whether we are the right service for you.

Therapy options

Our individual therapy option costs £40 for up to one year. We have low-cost sessions available to residents of Richmond borough on a low income, or recognised benefits, that run for up to 20 weeks.

If we discover one to one talking therapy with us is not the best option for you at this time, we can help you find other services that may be of more immediate help to you in the meantime.

Session times

Currently sessions run on Wednesdays 12-8pm, Thursdays 2-5pm, Fridays 9-3pm. We may also be able to offer online sessions if that’s more accessible for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Some of our therapists are experienced trainees, all are registered with a professional body, either the UKCP or BACP, and as such are required to attend regular supervision with one of our clinical supervisors. This ensures they are working as well as they can with you.

All our therapists and supervisors are bound by either the UKCP or the BACP code of ethics.
