I've pretty much exhausted my nhs allowance of counselling sessions so I'll need to pay for my own from next month. Can anyone tell me how much I should expect to pay please?

Hi, I'm having private counselling at the moment and it's £35 an hour. I wouldn't pay more than about £40, some of them are ridiculous prices x

Coconutter I would check out BACP if I was you, they list the names of counsellors and their disciplines so you contact them to see what they charge. However, £30/40 per hour does sound about right unless they have any concessions
