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 £35 to £65
Sex therapy £40 to £65  
Family counselling £40 to £65
Young people’s counselling (daytime)  £45
Young people’s counselling (evening)  £45 to £65

Clients resident in Calderdale and Kirklees

Costs are higher to clients in Calderdale and Kirklees because we do not recieve any funding from the NHS or local Councils in these areas. If you are unhappy about this, please contact your local MP, GP or councillor and ask for the reinstatement of Relate's funding. As things stand, costs are negotiable within the following ranges:

Registration Fee (includes first appointment)


Subsequent costs per session

Cost per adult counselling session £45 to £65
Cost per sex therapy session  £45 to £65 
Family counselling £45 to £65
Young people’s counselling (daytime)  £45
Young people’s counselling (evening) £45 to £65

From time to time, our Bursary Fund may be able to help fund the counselling of clients who are struggling with financial difficulties. Pleae ring our local offices for up to date information.

Clients not resident in the above areas

If you live outside our catchment area, you are very welcome to use our counselling and therapeutic services, but you will normally have to pay the full fee for each service, as follows:

Registration Fee
(includes first appointment)


Subsequent sessions £65

Payment details

Please note that all payments for counselling and therapy must be made at least 2 working days in before the scheduled appointment. Late cancellation will normally incur a late cancellation fee of £30.00, and a failure to attend will normally result in the loss of the whole of your advance payment.

Clients with a gross joint income of over £75,000

We would ask clients who enjoy a joint income in excess of £75K to consider paying more than £65.00 per session. This would greatly help our charity. Thank you.
