How to access counselling or therapy

Self-Referring and Fee-Paying

For those people referring themselves it is best to telephone BRIEF to make an arrangement to meet with a member of the counselling team.

Appointments can normally be offered within 2 weeks. Work starts from the time of the first contact and the average number of sessions at BRIEF is around 4. It is impossible to predict exactly how long any one piece of work will last but it will be for the person coming to decide when he or she is confident to finish. Appointments are rarely at one-week intervals, more normally with longer gaps between sessions and with the gap lengthening as change is evident. BRIEF is open Monday to Friday with most appointments taking place during office hours.

BRIEF is an independent organisation which is entirely self-funding. For self-referring clients paying for themselves the standard charge is £100.00 per session for individuals and £150.00 per session for couples and families.

Free therapy

BRIEF is Europe's largest training centre in the solution focused approach. If you would be happy for your sessions to be viewed by course participants, or if you would be prepared for your sessions to be recorded on DVD and those DVDs to be used on training programmes then there is the possibility that therapy can be offered at no charge.
