Payment for Services

Services are offered to all clients free of charge. However, based on the costs of providing a high quality service with professionally accredited counsellors, we do encourage donations wherever possible. We welcome voluntary donations via accessible envelopes in our counselling centres or via the following methods

If you are unable to make a donation this does not exclude you from our counselling/therapy services.

An additional opportunity to engage with our services quickly and flexibly is also provided by the Emerge service, involving client payment of £40 per session

Emerge Service

As a charity, New Life Counselling receives only a limited amount of public funding to provide our services and we are oversubscribed. This unfortunately means many have been waiting for longer than is reasonable to access support. Based on this high demand for our services, we also offer the alternative Emerge private counselling service, involving service payment and the opportunity for a shorter waiting time.

Emerge is a high quality, professional counselling service, provided to the same standards as all of our services. This is a service paid for by the client, with the benefit being that we aim to offer appointments within a shorter waiting time (2 weeks), as it does not rely on public funding being available. The service costs £40 per session and is available in each of our offices in East Belfast (Bloomfield House) and North Belfast (Ardoyne Road). As our service costs are reduced via client contribution, we also aim to provide flexibility in the time of appointments to best suit your needs.

All of our services are provided by highly qualified and accredited counsellors.

If you wish to access this service, you can do by contacting us on (028) 9039 1630 and advise that you are on the waiting list and wish to access Emerge. Our staff will then aim to arrange a suitable appointment for you within a 2 week period.
