Affordable therapy for people on benefits or a low income
At The Awareness Centre we offer affordable ways of accessing Counselling, Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology through our low cost service, if you are on benefits or a low income. We also offer Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy within the low cost service for both individuals and couples.
We have a team of caring counsellors, psychotherapists and counselling psychologists who will support you through any issues or worries you may be experiencing in a comfortable and confidential environment.
We aim to make it easy for you to find the right therapist to help you. Our reception team can book you in with a counsellor or psychotherapist at a time and day that suits you (subject to availability), seven days a week.
