How many sessions will I have and what does counselling cost?
Each counselling session will last for 50 minutes, and will take place on the same day, at the same time, with the same counsellor each week. Counselling can be short, medium or long-term (up to one year).
If you are able to pay £45 for your weekly sessions you qualify for our associate counselling service. You will be seen as soon as possible by one of our associate counsellors.
We also offer an affordable counselling service where we ask clients to indicate an amount they are able to contribute towards their sessions. Spaces within this service are limited and there is a waiting list. For more information, please see our website.
What else can you tell me?
Appointments are available during the day or evening and take place at our premises in Starbeck, which are accessible to people with disabilities.
To apply, please contact Wellspring yourself (01423 881 881 or email@example.com), even if counselling has been recommended by someone else such as your GP. We will then arrange to send out our self-referral forms to you by email or by post. The information you give us in these helps us allocate you a counsellor suited to your needs. If you are a Christian and would like to see a Christian counsellor, please specify this on your application form.
Once you have returned the completed forms to us, we will put your name on our waiting list and will contact you as soon as we have a suitable slot available.
