Fees at Possibilities Counselling
Possibilities first session fee
The discounted cost of the initial session only is £50.
Fee for all subsequent 50 minute sessions?
At the end of the first session, if further meetings are agreed, a set fee for all future sessions is worked out with you. This is based on a sliding scale from £60 to £110 related to your income and financial situation. The fee at Possibilities is fairly set to suit your financial situation.
Please keep in mind that Possibilities Psychotherapists are experts in their field, highly trained and very experienced. They are professionally registered clinicians with several years of formal post-graduate training in effective therapeutic approaches and have each successfully helped many thousands of people. Therefore, the level of expertise provided and experience needs to be taken fairly into account too when you are deciding on the fee.
Please also note that we are psychotherapists, not counsellors, trained to a much higher level; and provide a professional service. We do not use volunteer, non-qualified, non-registered counsellors.
Our clients regularly inform us that this is a much fairer way of determining the fee.
We do not want to turn people away for financial reasons; therefore, a limited number of appointments are available at concessionary rates.
Payment by cash or cheque are usually made at the end of each session. Unfortunately, we do not have facilities to process credit cards. Online payments can be made in advance by direct arrangement with the therapist you meet.
If paying is not a problem, do please consider making an additional donation to help those unable to manage the standard fee.
Possibilities Session Cancellation Policy
Sessions cancelled with less than 48-hours-notice are usually charged at the agreed session fee. Please note that the fee covers the therapist’s room booking, travel, insurance, registration costs and other financial outlays. No charge will be made for sessions cancelled with more than 48-hours-notice.
And the day came when the risk (it took) to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

What our previous clients have said
I experienced severe trauma and developed a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder which meant I wasn’t coping well with day to day life. With CBT Therapy at Possibilities, I’ve made a number of positive changes. It was a struggle at times but my psychotherapist helped me feel safe and capable as we worked through things. I’m now back at work and my confidence is growing. I have a life again. I’m so glad I took that scary first step and called. If you’re feeling unsure, I highly recommend you call them too.
– JT, Aberdeenshire: Trauma Counselling Aberdeen.
I thought my life wasn’t worth living. My depression convinced me I was worthless and useless and my situation was hopeless. If you’re feeling something similar, go to Possibilities. They made an enormous difference to my life and they can do the same for you.
– AD, Aberdeen: Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy for Depression.
My relationship with my partner has vastly improved. We’re more able to communicate and we’re spending more time together and having fun! I can’t believe we were on the verge of separating when we contacted Possibilities as a last resort. I can’t thank them enough.
– SMcM, Aberdeenshire: Couples Counselling Aberdeen.
Possibilities was outstanding. I’ve overcome my anxiety and have the tools to keep it at bay should I need them in the future.
