Therapy Concessions

When you are living on a low income, going to therapy can seem more like a luxury than an essential medical service. Many people who would greatly benefit from talking to a professional end up pushing their mental health needs aside for fear that they won’t be able to afford the ongoing costs of therapy. At UK Therapy Guide, we offer therapy concessions and discount therapy for those who are facing financial difficulties but want to reach out and improve their mental health. Whether you’ve been under a lot of stress lately, you are experiencing symptoms linked to a mental health concern, or you simply feel the need to talk to someone, there are ways to find affordable therapy. 

Discount therapy for NHS staff 

Healthcare jobs already ranked as some of the most stressful jobs before the pandemic, and the COVID-19 crisis amplified this stress, causing anxiety, depression, and PTSD rates to soar among NHS staff. According to a recent NHS report, frontline workers have some of the highest mental health risks and working in intensive care can have lasting consequences. Almost half of the NHS staff working in the ICU have reported symptoms of severe anxiety and depression, and 40% of them also reported symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – This is higher than the rates reported among combat troops. 


NHS staff must expose themselves to the virus every day, work under extreme pressure conditions, and make difficult moral decisions that can leave deep marks on mental health. It’s essential to express our gratitude and support for the healthcare workers who have helped millions of people at the cost of their own mental health, which is why, together with our therapists, we offer up to 50% discounts on online therapy sessions


To claim this discount, follow these steps: 


  • Use the “Find a Therapist” form on our homepage 
  • Under the “Types of therapy” drop-down menu, choose the option “NHS Staff and Carers’ Discount.”
  • Browse the list of accredited therapists and choose one that meets your requirements 
  • Schedule a session with your chosen therapist 

If you work in healthcare and you are concerned that the ongoing stress of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected your mental health, know that you are not alone. By seeking therapy, you can learn to manage the stress that comes with the job, form healthy coping mechanisms, and discover mindfulness techniques. 

Affordable Therapy (Low-Cost therapy)

The past year has been challenging for everyone, and millions of people in the UK have experienced symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. Unfortunately, financial stress has also gone up due to salary cuts and the soaring unemployment rate. Not only does this add even more pressure on mental health, but it has also put many in a situation where they have to struggle alone with their symptoms because they cannot afford to see a therapist. 


At UK Therapy Guide, we believe that everyone deserves the right to mental wellbeing and that money should not stand in the way of receiving professional therapy. 


This is why we have created a special Affordable Therapy package and offer a limited-time discount for everyone who is going through a hard time financially. With our low-cost therapy offer, you can benefit from professional therapy for just £20/week, billed as £89/month


We have extended this end-of-year offer into 2021 because the ongoing lockdown has put constant pressure on mental health. Please note that we have limited additional spaces for this affordable therapy offer, and they will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. 

How can I claim my affordable therapy offer? 

We want to help as many people as possible overcome the challenges of these complicated times and offer them a chance for a positive future. If you want to benefit from our affordable therapy package, please let us know your name, contact details, and your preferred time for therapy sessions. If a spot is available, we will contact you to schedule a meeting for a consultation with one of our accredited therapists. 

Who can benefit from affordable therapy?

At UK Therapy Guide, we encourage everyone who needs help overcoming a mental health issue to reach out and explore the available options. Feel free to contact us if: 


  • You are a student struggling with exam stress and the new challenges of online education. 
  • You come from a low-income background and find regular therapy sessions to be inaccessible 
  • You are unemployed, and the regular costs of therapy are too prohibitive
  • You have many expenses, and you cannot find good therapy options within your budget

Enjoy the benefits of therapy from home. 

Lockdown restrictions have made it difficult for many people to seek professional therapy, but the fact that you cannot leave your home doesn’t mean you cannot reach out and get help. Online therapy and phone therapy are two effective substitutes for face-to-face therapy, and you can gain the same benefits without having to leave the comfort of your home. Not only is this safer because you do not expose yourself to the virus, but it’s also more affordable because you no longer have to pay for gas money. By choosing our affordable online therapy package, you can have access to a wider range of therapists and receive treatment from some of the UK’s leading experts no matter where you are based. 


High costs should not prevent you from starting your mental health journey. 


If you are struggling financially, you shouldn’t sweep your symptoms under the rug. In time, failing to address negative thoughts and emotions may lead to complications and require potentially more costly services. Therapy is an investment for your long-term health and, at UK Therapy Guide, we want to connect as many people as possible with qualified therapists who can guide them towards a better future.
