Faster Flexible Service
Q: How does the faster flexible service work?
A: We offer a small number of appointments in exchange for a fixed fee. For fee-paying Client’s we can usually see you within 2 to 3 weeks’ of your 1st contact. However this can at times be more difficult with clients who have restricted availability. Our charges are £45.00 per session for an individual and £50 for couples.
Q: Why is this different from the majority of your appoinments?
A: We recognised that there are people who are willing and able to pay the set fee for counselling, and by providing this service at Cairns, they can access counselling for themselves knowing that they are supporting a charity to help many others.
In addition, finding funding to keep the service going remains a constant challenge. By having a small proportion (5%) of appointments available for a fixed fee, it provides us with some financial stability as a service and allows us to continue providing the majority (95%) of our appointments without charge.
