Over the last 12 months, everyone’s mental health has been tested. However, for many, getting help has been prohibitively expensive. We believe everyone should be able to access mental healthcare from a qualified professional. That’s why at UK Therapy Guide, we have launched our all-new Low-Cost Therapy Subscription - to give people the opportunity to benefit from a Therapeutic Relationship at just £89/month.
This is the UK’s first low-cost therapy subscription service, and you can choose from different formats, depending on your needs. You can sign up either for x1 30m minute session a week for £89/month or x1 hour-long session every other week for £99. EMDR is £99/month for a 1-hour session every other week.

Why providing affordable therapy is so important:
These statistics paint a bleak picture, which is why we wanted to create a solution. We want everyone to be able to benefit from therapy, and providing this low-cost therapy subscription gives people who would otherwise not have access the chance to feel better.
We have launched this service as we are aware that so many people in the UK are suffering and have found getting help inaccessible. We have built our new monthly subscription service to respond to this need, so head over to our dedicated page to schedule your affordable session.
As part of our Low-Cost Therapy Subscription, we’ve partnered with leading UK therapists who want to support those in need. View some of them below:

According to a recent study, every one out of six people over the age of 16 in the UK has experienced the symptoms of a mental health condition in the past seven days. Issues such as anxiety, stress, and depression can affect everyone, regardless of their gender, age, and social status; even one out of eight children in the UK is estimated to suffer from a mental health condition.
Unfortunately, not all those who need treatment also receive it, and high therapy costs are one of the main reasons why this happens. Historically, the cost of high-quality therapy is prohibitively expensive, which is why, sometimes, precisely the people who need it the most struggle in silence.
In the past few years, things have been getting better; the NHS has acknowledged the need for low-cost therapy, and programmes such as Improving Access to Psychological Therapies were well-received because they aim to treat a high percentage of referred people within six weeks to ensure optimal results. In 2018/2019, nearly 90% of patients who completed a therapy programme waited less than six weeks. However, the situation isn’t so bright across all of Britain, as shown by regional statistics. While patients in Basildon and Brentwood waited for an average of 4 days to see a therapist, those in Manchester waited for up to 61 days – and that can severely impact the outcome of the treatment. What’s more, the waiting times between the first and second session were anywhere between 22 to 162 days.
Another worrying fact is that people with low-income, from deprived areas in England, need access to therapy the most. And yet, there is a disconnect between demand and supply because significantly fewer people from disadvantaged areas receive treatment compared to those from more privileged areas.
At UK Therapy Guide, we want to bridge this gap and offer access to low-cost therapy. With our subscription, you will receive access to affordable therapy services, without compromising on quality.
The pandemic has been hard on everyone’s emotional balance. Between lockdown restrictions that prevent us from seeing our loved ones and enjoying our hobbies, to living with constant health anxiety, it’s been a tough year. Between 2020 and 2021, the number of people who need mental health support increased considerably:
During the pandemic, the mental health challenges that people sought treatment for the most were anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.
People from low-income households are more likely to experience the negative effects of the pandemic. Even before that, studies found that people from low-income households (<£1,200/month) were at a higher risk. Now, this category is even more vulnerable because the pandemic has led to a rise in unemployment and financial insecurity.
If your mental health has gotten worse during the pandemic and you need someone to talk to, high therapy fees should not prevent you from getting help. Through our Low-Cost Therapy Subscription, you can get access to hundreds of qualified therapists across the UK and schedule affordable online sessions.
