Low Cost Counselling Service: FAQs

What is the Low Cost Counselling Service?

With low cost therapy, you will be in session with a therapist currently undergoing their training. The reason we offer low cost therapy services is twofold; we are not only making therapy services accessible to people on a low income, but we are also giving training counsellors the opportunity to develop their skills in face-to-face sessions with clients.

Why does private therapy cost more?

Private therapy services cost more because the therapists providing the support have completed their years of training and are highly experienced within their fields. It is also likely that each private therapist will have an area of specialism and will be able to provide in-depth support for a specific concern. Low cost therapists will have a broader (yet still comprehensive) knowledge of issues and approaches to treatment.

What are the different types of low cost therapy?

Your therapist will be able to determine the type of therapy that will provide the best results for you, depending on your specific concern. Types of therapy typically covered at TAC may include behavioural therapy, cognitive therapy, humanistic therapy, integrative counselling and psychodynamic therapy.

How often should I go to therapy?

How often you go to therapy will usually depend on your specific concern and what you have agreed with your therapist. Everyone’s approach is different, but typically it is recommended to attend a therapy session once per week for the best results.
