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.
£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
The Chris Boulter
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.
