We really can help

Our evaluations consistently show over 90% of clients receiving therapy at Aire Valley Counselling & Therapy had improved mental well-being by the end of their therapy.

More than 80% of clients rate improvements to their mental health as 'very good' or 'excellent.' 

We offer a choice of Talking Therapies

We offer both Counselling and Psychotherapy depending on your presentation and needs. We can also arrange for other therapies.

Your sessions are unlimited, however you will regularly review the work with your Counsellor/Therapist.

Experiencing a crisis?

Unfortunately we are unable to offer support outside the sessions

Your counsellor or therapist will not be able to take any calls except to rearrange/cancel sessions.


Make an Appointment today



Call us today and we will take some basic information from you. Once you have spoken to us we will put you forward for an Assessment. We aim to offer an Assessment within 1-3 weeks.


You will meet with our Clinical Manager or one of our Psychotherapists who will assess your needs. This can take up to an hour and will cost £10-£20 dependent upon income.

The assessment is an opportunity for you to explain why you believe you need help. The Psychotherapist will determine that you are at the correct service and what type of help you need. You will be given an opportunity to think about what change you want to work towards. If we can’t help you we will help you secure another service.


We will offer you a set time and day every week for you to commence your counselling/therapy. These sessions last 50 minutes and we work in 6 week blocks. Your sessions are unlimited but every 6 weeks your progress is fully reviewed.

Before you accept your slot, please ensure that you will be able to attend every week. Any late cancellations (24 hours) or appointments not attended MUST be paid for. We always have a waiting list and very limited resources. We really try to see as many people as we can. Your commitment to your therapy is crucial.

PLEASE do not call at the premises without an appointment. Staff are usually with clients
The office is not always staffed so we cannot accommodate unexpected callers.
