Community Counselling HP16 Local, affordable counselling in Prestwood, Bucks

What happens when you decide to contact us

When you telephone, a counsellor may not be able to answer your call straight away, so it might help you to think about what message you would like to leave.

Please include:
  • your name
  • a telephone number
  • a time for a counsellor to call back that suits you
  • and any message you have

    Please say if it's OK to leave a message. The counsellor can leave their name rather than Community Counselling HP16 if you prefer click here to see who we are

  • You may prefer to contact us by email or by text message.

    However you choose to contact us, we will get back to you as soon as we can. We always aim to do this within 24 hours.

    When you want to make an appointment, you will be invited for a free initial meeting to find out if counselling might be helpful for you; this will take up to 1 hour. We carry out a free meeting to help make sure that we can offer the help and support you are looking for.



    How long will I need counselling for?

    We do not have a time limit on how many sessions you have; we offer short and long term counselling.

    We suggest 6 sessions is a useful guide to begin with as it can take time to get used to counselling and your counsellor.

    Some people want more and some less, everyone is different. Your counsellor will check with you regularly what you want and whether you are finding counselling helpful; you can talk about this with your counsellor at any time and they will help you to decide what is best for you.



    Time & Length of sessions

    We will arrange a day and a time that suits you, this will usually be the same day and time each week and always with the same counsellor.

    Each session is for up to one hour (shorter sessions may be agreed for children or young people).

    Unfortunately if you arrive late the session cannot be run past its original finish time.

  • Costs

    Our fee scale is £10-£45 per session.

    We need to charge a fee for counselling but you decide what you can afford to offer depending on your income and circumstances; the weekly fee you pay will be discussed and agreed at your first free meeting.

    If you are a parent/carer arranging counselling for your child (under 18), the weekly fee you pay will be £10. You will be invited to attend with your child for the first 10-15 minutes at an initial free meeting.

    We offer counselling free for under 18's who want or need to access counselling directly for themselves and without the help of an adult.

    We believe counselling should be available for everyone and anyone whatever their circumstances. Please don't be afraid to contact us because you are worried you can't afford to pay.
