At Malahide Counselling & Psychotherapy we want counselling to be affordable for everybody who wants to engage in it regardless of their economic situation and to that end we offer rates to attend a fully accredited therapist which are lower than many other therapists and practices.
As each of our Accredited therapists set their own individual fee, [typically about €60 per session] it is important that you check the rate with the individual therapist you speak with.
Should you be experiencing financial problems, at their own discretion, some of our therapists may be able to reduce their rate for you: if they are unable to facilitate this then you may be able to avail of our Low Cost Counselling Service (See below).
When you meet your therapist for the first time you will agree your per-session fee between you: you simply pay that fee at the end of each session. We NEVER ask for money up front or ask you to sign a contract for a fixed number of sessions.
If for any reason you do not feel that you wish to return for further sessions all we ask is that you inform your therapist of this decision: there is no financial implication to you.
PLEASE NOTE: Should you cancel an appointment with very little notice [usually less than 24 hrs] or fail to turn up at an appointment you can expect to pay part or all of the fee for that session. Your therapist will discuss this matter with you when you attend your first session.

*Low cost appointments are limited and allocated on a first-come first-served basis. If you wish to avail of low cost counselling and no appointment can be offered immediately you may have to wait a short while until one becomes available. We will do our best to facilitate you as quickly as possible.
Students studying Counselling & Psychotherapy
We are happy to work with students who are required to attend counselling as part of their course requirement. Please ask the therapist you are interested in working with if they offer a special student rate.

Should you cancel an appointment with very little notice [usually less than 24 hrs] or fail to turn up at an appointment you can expect to pay part or all of the fee for that session. Your therapist will discuss this matter with you when you attend your first session.
