Optional Paid Service

As a charity we believe that all children and young people should have access to free counselling. However, we don’t currently have enough money to see everyone quickly and this is the reason we have such a long waiting list of 7/8 months. For parents/carers who would like to reduce this waiting time, you can do so by paying for the counselling sessions, at a subsidised cost of £30 per session. If this is the option that you would prefer, please tick below.

Please indicate whether you wish to pay for the child/young person's counselling.
