Face-to-face waiting times may be longer but we have some slots available – see below for current spaces*.
- Monday: Late morning and afternoon spaces available at Little Venice and Wimpole Street
- Tuesday: Late morning and afternoon spaces available at Little Venice
- Wednesday: Morning and afternoon spaces in Fulham. Evening spaces available at East Putney
*Please let us know when you refer if any of these times and locations would be suitable. Availability is subject to change and spaces are only confirmed after a full assessment has been made and our service deemed suitable for your needs.

About Help Counselling
At Help Counselling we have been proudly providing affordable, short and long term counselling to the local community in West London for over 50 years. During this time we have improved thousands of people’s lives, through the provision of talking therapies. At Help we typically support people who present with a range of well-being and mental health concerns including anxiety, stress or depression. As a successful and well-established counselling organisation, our team and trainees will be able to explore with you how we can make a difference to your life through counselling. Unlike some other services, at Help we can often facilitate clients to work long term and allow you the necessary time and space, to work through the issue at hand.
To request an assessment please complete the enquiry form, which enables us to better understand the support you require at this time. We look forward to hearing from you! Our assessments are charged at £25 and will take approximately one hour to complete. Our weekly counselling session rates start at £25 per session online and £35 per session face-to-face, which represents a significant discount to private therapy rates.
Please note that Help does not offer a crisis service or emergency response and our phone lines and emails are only available within office hours. Unfortunately, Help is not best placed to work with you if you are under the age of 18, have an active addiction or if you are receiving care for a psychiatric condition. If you feel that you are at risk of harm please contact the Samaritans for free 24/7 on 116123 or text SHOUT to 85258 or in an emergency please attend your nearest A&E.
