The cost of our services


The cost of relate counselling
and therapy

Because Relate Pennine Keighley & Craven operates in several different NHS and local authority areas, the cost of our services varies according to our clients’ residential addresses and the surgery at which they are registered.  We apologise for any confusion this might cause, but if you are in any doubt as to what you might be asked to pay for relate services, please ring your local relate office and we will be pleased to help.

Clients resident in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale or Craven

Currently, our funding from Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust and Bradford Public Health is such that

  • Relate’s adult relationship counselling and sex therapy services are free for clients coming to us via a formal written referral from a GP or other qualified health professional.

  • Our therapeutic counselling service for children and young people is free for young clients able to attend counselling at our Keighley base.

  • IAPT Couple Counselling for Depression is also free for couple clients who meet the appropriate criteria

Please be aware, however, that the number of free sessions we can supply per week is necessarily limited by the level of the funding we receive.  This means that at times of heavy demand, clients entitled to our free services may be subject to a considerable wait before their free counselling or therapy programmes can commence and that the range of appointment times we can offer for free counselling and therapy may be limited.

For clients who wish to self-refer or who need immediate access to counselling and a wider variety of appointment times, our charges are negotiable within the following ranges: 

Registration Fee
(includes first appointment)


Subsequent costs per session

Relationship counselling £30 to £65
Sex therapy £35 to £65  
Family counselling £35 to £65
Young people’s counselling (daytime)  £45
Young people’s counselling (evening)  £45 to £65

Payment details

Please note that all payments for counselling and therapy must be made at least 2 working days in advance of the scheduled appointment and that late cancellations or a failure to attend an appointment will normally result in either the loss of your advance payment.  or a late cancellation fee of £30.00We
operate this system in order to help minimise wasted appointments and to keep our waiting list as short as possible.

Change of circumstances or financial hardship

We realise that people’s financial circumstances can be subject to sudden change and we are generally able to renegotiate the level of client payments for clients who find themselves in financial difficulty during the course of their counselling or therapeutic programmes.  If you find yourself worrying about the cost of your relate service, please contact us and we will try to help.
