What does donation basis mean?
Put simply, you can choose how much you can afford to pay for your supervision and counselling. We will suggest a donation amount to you based on your household composition and income (typically £15-£30), but you don’t have to follow our suggestion if you don’t think it takes full account of your circumstances.
We trust you to pay what you can so that everyone can get the support that they need.
As a not for profit organisation, every penny we receive in donations from our sessions goes back into the service and ensures we can continue to provide supervision and counselling in this way.
To put this into context if you were to arrange your supervision and counselling separately then average rates for one 50 minute supervision session in Newcastle is £60, and private counselling is £50. This is without all the added training and support we provide.
If you choose to arrange your supervision and therapy elsewhere then please discuss this with us before accepting a placement with us.
