Find an FPN therapist

How to find an FPN therapist

The directory is organised by geographical areas. Choose a therapist and use the contact details to get in touch. Many of the therapists have a short profile available about themselves and their work. We offer no guarantee that therapists have free or low fee places available at any particular time. You will have to find ou t for yourself.

All arrangements for therapy will be made between yourself and the therapist. Therapists will usually have a current registration with a professional body, under whose code of ethics and complaints procedure they are working. You can check their qualifications in the directory. Do feel free and able to talk to a therapist about their qualifications, their ethical and complaints framework.

We are offering free psychotherapy – and free means free. If a therapist tells you they are only offering low-cost therapy, they should not be on the list. Please let us know if this is your experience.

Free therapy through the NHS

It may be possible to get counselling and psychotherapy through your GP. Your GP may have counsellors working within your GP practice, though this is now not too common. They can refer you on to a variety of psychological therapies services, including Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT). You can also self-refer to your local IAPT service – see here to find it. IAPT can work well for some people.  For others, a first therapy through the NHS can feel too short or lacking the depth required. There will usually be a waiting list and the therapy will usually be short-term and mainly Cognitive Behavioural.

Free therapy through your school/college/university

Most higher education colleges have a counselling service, as do many schools. If you are a student, find out about your in-house counselling service and see if they can help.

Other affordable options for people on low incomes

There are a number of other ways you might be able to find affordable therapy if you are prepared to hunt around and perhaps be on a waiting list for a while.

Take a look at our list of low-cost services here.
