Counselling in Colchester

What will it cost?

If think we might be able to help you, please contact us on 01206 561 606 or by email at Call us to arrange an assessment appointment. The assessment will give you a chance to see if what we offer will suit you and also allow us to assess if what we offer is appropriate for you.


If, after the assessment, we are able to offer regular therapy, your name will be added to our waiting list. When an appointment becomes available a counsellor will be assigned to you and he or she will confirm the appointment. After this you will continue to meet on a regular weekly basis.

Assessments are charged at a fixed rate of £45 for individuals and £55 for a couple. There are concessionary rates of £10 for individuals and £15 for couples who are on benefits, or who, for other reasons, have difficulty meeting the charge.


If it is agreed that we can offer regular counselling, fees will be negotiated separately in your first session, and will be based on your income. It is central to our philosophy that no-one should be turned away through lack of means to pay, but we do expect a minimum contribution of £10 per session for those whose main source of income is from benefits. As a charity we rely on client contributions, donations from local trusts and churches.
