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 charge the same rate of €60 per session for individuals or €70 for a couple. 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.

Low Cost Counselling

Even with our relatively low rates we acknowledge that not everyone can afford to pay the full fee and to that end our fully accredited therapists offer a reduced rate on a limited number of their appointments*. If the cost of therapy is an issue for you, call one of our therapists today to to discuss the current availability of a low cost appointment.

*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 and are in a position to offer a special student rate: contact us for further information.

Cancellations and No-Shows

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.
