How much will it cost?

The cost of sessions is  £40 for individuals or £60 for couples. The initial assessment is charged at half price: £20 for individuals and £30 for couples.

Financial support

In certain circumstances we may consider offering a limited number of sessions at a reduced fee. If the standard cost would prevent you coming for counselling, and you would like to apply for a reduction in fees, please complete the  Application Form for Fee Reduction, and submit this with your Background Information Form. Both of these forms are available on the ‘Forms’ tab on this website. Your counsellor will be happy to discuss options with you at the initial assessment.

How to pay

The fee is payable in cash or by cheque (Made payable to ‘The Oaks Counselling Service Ltd.’) on the day, or electronically two working days in advance (Please ask us for our banking details).


The Oaks Counselling Service is a not for profit charity. We are always grateful to receive donations from individuals or trusts towards reducing the fee in cases of hardship.  If you would like to support our work financially, please click on the logo below, which will take you to our page on the Virgin Money Giving website:
