Counselling can help you gain new perspectives about yourself and support you in resolving your difficulties, as well as helping you find new ways of coping with a greater sense of control and choice in your life.

Our private counsellors offer face-to-face therapy at our two London centres, in Clapham and Tooting, and many can also offer telephone and online counselling so that you can get support wherever you are in the world. Our counsellors are highly-trained and can offer support for a wide range of issues using a number of approaches to therapy.

Private Counselling in London: FAQs

What is private counselling?

Counselling offers a safe and confidential space where a trained counsellor can help you explore your individual issues with warmth, empathy, acceptance and respect. Counselling is not about giving advice or telling you what to do. Counsellors do not have an agenda or a roadmap for your life. Counselling is about listening to you without judgement, enabling you to explore your thoughts and feelings and helping you access resources within.

What is the difference between a counsellor and a therapist?

While these terms are sometimes used interchangeably, there are a few important differences between counsellors and psychotherapists. All roles will of course work to help their clients face, understand and overcome mental health and life challenges, however individuals will have had different types of training. ‘Therapist’ tends to be a generic term for a professional in the mental health space. A counsellor will have been required to undergo three years of intensive training. A psychotherapist will usually train for 4-5 years depending on the course, often delving deeper into specific areas. At TAC, we will be able to assist you in choosing the type of support you need by recommending counsellors, psychotherapists or psychologists that have the most relevant expertise.

How much does private counselling cost?

Fees for private counselling and psychotherapy range from £65 – £150. The cost can vary because counsellors with a private practice set their own hourly rates, so the fee you pay will depend on which counsellor you choose.

We also offer a low cost counselling service for those who are on a low income. The fee for low cost counselling is £40. The therapists providing these sessions will be undergoing training.

How many sessions of private counselling will I need?

Depending on the nature of your problem, counselling can be short or long term, with sessions usually being scheduled on a weekly basis. However, your counsellor will be able to discuss what works best for you in terms of the regularity of your appointments.

How do I know if counselling is right for me?

You might be feeling unsure as to whether counselling is right for you. If this is the case, you can always contact one of our team to talk through your issues and discuss which of our services might benefit you the most. In general, if you are seeking support for a mental health issue and would like to understand more about the root causes of your problems, counselling will likely be very beneficial.
