Counselling and Group Therapy
At Leeds Mind we are pleased to be able to offer Leeds residents individual, one-to-one counselling as well as group based therapy. Talking therapies can be beneficial to many people who are going through a time of poor mental health, and the choice of individual or group therapy depends upon the challenges you are facing in your life. We can help you with that decision.
If you are thinking about seeing a counsellor with us, please take the time to read the information in the sections below, which should give you a better understanding of who we are and our process of working with you.
All counselling and therapy sessions all take place in Horsforth, Leeds and is available to people aged 18 or over. Please note we are not able to work with couples.

The Leeds Mind Counselling Service offers an affordable self-referral counselling and psychotherapy service to anyone who lives in the Leeds area. The cost is income-based, so our service is accessible to everyone who feels they may need it.
We are not able to offer our service free of charge, but we take your income into account when deciding how much you will pay, and our prices range from £10 to £40 an appointment. Please note that our counselling service is only open for referrals at certain times due to high demand on the service.
As with most volunteer-led organisations, we have a waiting list for our counselling service, which at the moment stands at around three months from referral, depending on the client’s flexibility in terms of time.
Therefore, we also have an evening private practice service that we can offer charged at a standard rate of £40 a session. This does not mean that the queue is jumped, or that those who are unable to pay have to wait longer, as all clients seen under this service are additional to our core funded service. All proceeds go towards supporting the work of the charity and helping to increase capacity, improve our service and eventually reduce waiting times. All Counsellors for our private practice counselling service are fully qualified.
Group Therapy offers a safe and supportive space in which to explore emotional and relationship issues that are having a negative impact on your life and your mental health. These sessions take place weekly in Horsforth, Leeds, and the cost is income-based so this therapy is available to everyone who requires it. Group Therapy is a long-term therapy option.
The Group Therapy service will close in the summer of 2018 and is unable to take further self-referrals. If you would like further information on other services offering Group Therapy within Leeds please get in touch with the Counselling Service.
