A consultation service is available for people who wish to explore whether psychotherapy or analysis would be helpful. During the consultation, you will have an opportunity to talk about yourself and your difficulties and consider what form of therapy would be most helpful for you. The consultation may involve one session or extend to two if necessary. Whilst sessions for therapy and analysis last 50 minutes, the meeting for a first consultation will usually be longer, perhaps between one hour and an hour and a quarter. The fee for this initial consultation is £75, although a discount of £30 is given to people on low incomes or benefits.

If psychotherapy or analysis is found to be the best form of help, you will be referred on to an SAP psychotherapist or analyst as appropriate.  If psychotherapy or analysis is not considered to be the most suitable form of help, the SAP will make every effort to identify other sources of help for you.
