Following receipt of your enquiry, if there is a suitable vacancy on our low fee scheme we will send you a questionnaire to complete.

Once the questionnaire is returned along with your administration fee of £30, if appropriate we will arrange for you to have a consultation.

You will be offered a consultation with a senior therapist. This will provide you with an opportunity to explore your needs and readiness for psychotherapy; The fee for this consultation is £75 and if two meetings are required it will be £100.   This payment is paid directly to the therapist offering you this appointment and is non refundable.

There is no guarantee that there will be a referral to one of our trainee therapists after the assessment consultation.  A decision concerning a potential referral for therapy will be taken by the Clinical Team after the consultation with the senior therapist.  Psychotherapy is not always the most suitable form of help and it may be considered that an alternative form of therapy would be more appropriate. The Clinical Team consider each application carefully and may make alternative recommendations.

Reports may be requested, with your permission, if you have had previous contacts and consultations with similar services.

If it is decided that this is not the best form of treatment for you other options will be suggested.

Where possible we do our best to accommodate individual needs with regard to location and times available for therapy.
