Pricing Policy

At Malahide Counselling & Psychotherapy we want counselling to be available to everybody regardless of their economic situation and to that end we offer try to offer rates to attend a fully accredited therapists which are lower than many other therapists and practices.

Our Accredited therapists set their own individual fee, the average rate being €60 per session. Should you be experiencing financial problems, at their own discretion, the therapist you are seeking to attend may be able to reduce that rate for you [please see Low Cost Counselling below]

We NEVER ask for money up front or ask you to sign a contract for a fixed number of sessions.

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.

Our typical fee is €60 per session for an individual and €70 for couples/relationship therapy.

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.

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 with very little notice 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.
