Mates in Mind

Hello, my name is Rebecca. I run Low Cost Counselling Maidstone. I believed that cost should never be the reason you are unable to access support.
Day Time Sessions (7am- 5pm) £28
Evening Sessions (5pm-8pm) £30

I am a professionally qualified, registered and experienced Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working in Maidstone, Kent.

After working in colleges, university and prison for the past 15 years, I have experience of working with both adults and young people with a range of emotional and learning difficulties.
