Low Cost Counselling
We are pleased to be able to offer low cost counselling to some of our clients, however, this can only be offered following a telephone assessment from one of our Clinical assessors so they may assess your suitability for this type of therapy. We are currently able to provide our low-cost counselling service at £15 per 50-minute session which are generally attended weekly.
Our Low Cost Counselling is provided by highly trained student counsellors who are or newly qualified volunteer counsellors working towards British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) accreditation status. Each student counsellor is undergoing training by an accredited counselling organisation. The counsellors are in their last year of their counselling qualification and have to achieve a certain amount of hours in practice to gain their qualified status. Each student is required to have a Fitness to Practice letter signed from their counselling organisation.
Your referral will be screened by one of our clinical assessors and if they feel you are suitable you will be allocated accordingly to one of our trainee volunteer counsellors based upon your current presenting needs.
Due to the current situation around COVID 19 if suitable we can discuss offering telephone or skype sessions.
All our trainee volunteer counsellors work within the BACP Framework for Counselling Professions (2018) and are DBS checked. They are also required and committed to attend regular supervision provided by the clinical team at Mind in West Essex.
We look forward to receiving your referrals and to support you through this process to achieve your goals in counselling.
