How we help Make an appointment Make an appointment Many clients come to us through word of mouth, their GP, social work department and other agencies. It is important that the initiative for making an appointment comes from you. This can be by email, phone or post. You can either download our form here: Self-referral_Pack_2019.doc or we can post one out to you. When you return the completed form, we will treat it in the strictest confidence. Please note that in order for us to add you to our waiting list, we ask that you pay a £10 admin fee and notify Wellspring of this payment in reference to your self-referral form. You can do this by cheque, cash or by BACS. For the avoidance of doubt, until Wellspring has received notification of your payment of the admin fee and received the monies, your self-referral form will not be processed. Notification of payment must occur simultaneously with payment. If this does not occur, your application may be delayed. For more information on how to pay please see our self-referral form. The waiting time for an appointment varies. Our allocations are quicker when the client has greater flexibility, in terms of days and times, but it is usually longer for evening appointments, which is currently up to three months. We operate a sliding scale for fees, according to income as follows: Under £15,000 – around £25 per session Between £15-20,000 – around £30 per session Between £20-25,000 – around £35 per session Between £25-30,000 – around £45 per session Between £30-35,000 – around £55 per session Between £35-45,000- around £65 per session Over £45,000- around £75 per session For couples, please add £20 per hour to the above. Therapy for trainee counsellors (required to have personal therapy as a course requirement) is £40/hour. The fee is discussed with your therapist in the first session and is reviewed on an annual basis throughout your therapy. Short Term Therapy Wellspring offers a Short Term Therapy service which consists of a total of 7 sessions at £60 per session (£420 in total). You can download our Short-Term Self-Referral Form here: Short-Term-Self-Referral-2019.docx Or we can post one out to you. When you return the completed form, we will treat it in the strictest confidence. Please note that in order to be added to our waiting list, we ask that you pay a £10 admin fee. You can find more information about payment options on the self-referral form. The waiting list for short-term therapy is currently up to 4 weeks.
