Private Counselling

What is Low Cost Counselling, Psychotherapy & Counselling Psychology?

At The Awareness Centre we offer more affordable ways of accessing counselling, psychotherapy and counselling psychology through our low cost service. If you’re on benefits or a low income there’s no reason why you can’t have therapy too.

We have a team of caring counsellors, psychotherapists and counselling psychologists who are genuinely interested in supporting you through any issues or worries you may be experiencing at this difficult time.

We offer a comfortable, confidential environment for you to explore your thoughts and feelings – and our therapists will support you during this process. All of this at a price you can afford.

How much is Low Cost Counselling, Psychotherapy & Counselling Psychology?

  • If you’re receiving benefits (including working tax credit, registered disabled, pensioners and students) the fee for a weekly counselling session is £20*.
  • If you are on a low income, the fee is £35*.

*Please note, if you are currently in training to be a counsellor, counselling psychologist or psychotherapist you will not be able to access the Low Cost Counselling Service.

'I was blown away by the positive and profound effects from the very first session – it was as if a light had been turned on and suddenly I could see everything so much more clearly. While the Awareness Centre came highly recommended, this was my first experience with therapy and I really wasn’t expecting such a constructive and life-changing effect.'

What people say

[My therapist’s] calming presence really helped me to be frank and honest. Having someone listen so intently and make poignant observations is a rare thing. She uses this to great effect – guiding you back to issues which need addressing
