We are a registered charity.

Our charitable aim is to provide counselling as widely as possible without profit and to ensure that no-one is excluded from counselling because they cannot afford to pay the full cost.


Standard  Counselling Fee

We ask that if you earn over £30,000 or are able to afford it, that you pay £42, our standard fee option. We are a charity and this standard fee enables us to offer supported counselling for people in Worthing and surrounding areas. 



For this you will attend for an initial consultation with a qualified counsellor who is a member of BACP/UKCP/NCS within a fully accredited counselling service. You will then be allocated  to  a counsellor for your ongoing weekly counselling.

During the initial consultation general details and history are discussed to ensure that counselling is appropriate for you at this time.

Standard Fee

 £42 per session* for individuals


If cost could be a barrier, we offer financially supported counselling, depending on what you can afford

There is no means test – we ask you to be as honest and generous as possible. Our ability to offer counselling in the community depends on all our clients understanding our charitable status

Initial 1 hour consultation with a counsellor £30

Ongoing counselling £25–£35 per session*

*Session length is 50 minutes

We have a small, limited fund available if you are in receipt of benefits  or have a very small income. 

To apply, please ask for an application form when you contact the centre. All applications are assessed by the Head of Clinical Services. 


  • Once you start ongoing counselling, your session time is held for you.

  • If you do not attend, your weekly fee will normally still be payable. 48 hours notice is required for cancellation.

  • As a charity, missed appointments do impact on our service.
