We offer help across a wide range of life issues: i.e.

Willows is a charity and therefore we do encourage everyone to contribute towards the cost of their counselling by making a donation between £15 - £45 per session; dependent upon your circumstances. We help you to consider this by sending you information and a form to complete which takes into consideration your employment status, financial situation, whether you are receiving benefits, elderly or a student.   If you have any issues with payment please do discuss this with us.

We also ask for a non-returnable fee to cover administration costs. £10 if you are in work. £5 if you are unwaged.
