If you’re going through a difficult time for any reason, our counsellors are trained to help you explore your feelings and experiences in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. HDS offers affordable counselling and therapeutic services with our psychodynamically trained counsellors. 

How much does counselling cost?

We offer two fee options, including an affordable option, which will be discussed with you during your assessment. 

  • £50 per session if you wish to work with qualified counsellors in an open-ended way (with you deciding on when you’d like to finish therapy).
  • £20 to £30 per session (based on what you can contribute) if you wish to work with trainees for a block of 20 or 40 sessions.  

We currently have appointments available with our low cost therapy service in Glasgow.
