How to access psychoanalytic psychotherapy at AGIP
There are a few ways of accessing psychotherapy at AGIP:
Fairbridge Low-Fee Clinic - Via Consultation
For students or those in receipt of state benefits
The Fairbridge Clinic is a psychotherapy service available to those on very low incomes. If you are a full-time student or in receipt of state benefits, and without additional sources of income, you may be referred to this service.
The Fairbridge Clinic offers twice weekly psychotherapy for a fee ranging from £8 to £25 per session. You will be asked to commit to a minimum of two years psychotherapy and be prepared to see a psychotherapy trainee.
If you are unsure whether you might qualify for this level of low fee rate please contact the office by email for clarification.
The fee for the initial assessment is £35.
You can book a consultation in two ways:

Consultation can also be arranged by emailing or telephoning our office, see our Contact Page.
We will send you a short questionnaire which will need to be completed before the consultation appointment.
Please be advised that due to high demand for consultations, there may be a wait of a few months before you are seen or allocated.
Concessionary Fee - via Consultation
For those on income below £25,000 per annum
If you are on a low wage you might be considered for a concessionary rate of psychotherapy.
If you wish to be considered for the concessionary rate we have some spaces available. Typically fees for concessionary range from £26 - £50.00. This clinic is for those who are working but on low incomes (below £25,000 per annum). The fee for the initial assessment is £55.00.
If you think you meet the criteria for either Fairbridge Clinic or Concessionary please let us know by return of email. We will then forward you a questionnaire and payment link. Kindly note that due to increasingly high demand, it may be several months before you are seen.
If you are not eligible for the low fee/concessionary clinics you are welcome to contact therapists directly. You will find their contact details on our website at https://www.agip.org.uk/psychotherapy/therapist-search
