Wandsworth Association Of Psychotherapists Low Cost Counselling Centre
We offer low-cost, open-ended counselling, and also provide psychotherapy. Our practitioners come from a variety of training backgrounds. Counselling and psychotherapy sessions are offered on a once a week basis. Fees for low cost counselling, run by counsellors working towards qualification or post-qualification accreditation, usually range from £25 - £50 per weekly session depending on clients’ ability to pay and the time of the appointment. Fees for psychotherapy with fully qualified and more experienced therapists start from around £60 - £70 per weekly session. We can occasionally offer counselling at fees lower than £25, so please do enquire about current availability if you need this.
We accept people from all over London and further afield, not only from Wandsworth.
Training, qualifications & experience
WAP psychotherapists work in a variety of modalities, providing integrative, person centred, gestalt, or psychodynamic psychotherapy.
