At ATTC we recognise that counselling should be easily accessible by everyone and that everyone should have an opportunity to engage in a therapeutically healing relationships. Disappointingly we know that is not the case. Therefore we decided to set up a low cost service for those with limited financial abilities.
The ATTC low-cost counselling service is designed to offer therapy to individual adult clients aged 18 and above. Counselling is offered both in person and on-line by counsellors and psychotherapists in training on counselling and psychotherapy trainings accredited by BACP and UKCP. Please bear in mind that most counsellors in training are required to record some sessions for their development purposes. Any recordings will be kept securely and once no longer needed in training they will be permanently deleted.
Current waiting time to be seen by one our low cost counsellors is up to 12 weeks.
You can begin the process of finding a counsellor by filling out the registration form (click button above). There is a £25 registration fee, which will cover an assessment of your clinical needs and a placement with a suitable counsellor.
Once you have submitted the registration form, the Counselling Service will contact you to arrange an appointment for the telephone or on-line assessment.
The assessment will take up to 50minutes and will involve us asking detailed questions about your life, including the physical, emotional and financial situation. In some cases we may decide that clients may not be suitable for work with counsellors in-training.
After the assessment the client will be carefully matched with a counsellor. Current wait to begin counselling is up to 12 weeks.
