For those in Surrey aged between 14 and 39.
Counselling in Surrey
Here at The Lucy Rayner Foundation, we understand there can be many barriers to accessing support for mental health difficulties. There is no doubt that young people especially are facing difficulties sourcing counselling services due to wait times and costs.
We aim to change that by offering 14-39-year-olds across Surrey, six counselling sessions with the cost of these being based on a sliding scale of affordability. We are offering counselling at £35 per session, however, we will assess affordability individually and ensure that each client only contributes an amount that they are comfortable with, whilst still being able to offer free sessions if absolutely necessary. Our team will help arrange sessions as quickly as possible so you can all benefit sooner from the insight of a licensed health professional.
We will do the behind-the-scenes work, ensuring to the best of our ability, that you are matched with the most appropriate counsellor for your specific needs. An initial assessment will be organised once your referral form has been completed and will be followed by 6 sessions once full payment has been received.
*Please note, we will require full payment of all six sessions up-front and are currently unable to offer a pay as you go service. *
Your journey as a client
Common Mental Health Issues
The Lucy Rayner Foundation is proud to provide support for young people throughout the UK and Surrey. Our counselling service is designed to help tackle a wide range of mental health issues you may be experiencing, including:
Counselling for depression
Counselling for Self Harm
Counselling for anxiety
Counselling for eating disorders
Counselling for bereavement
Counselling for low self-esteem
We also support people experiencing a deterioration of their mental health during periods of acute stress, such as following a bereavement or relationship breakdown. We understand that mental health can be complex and that different issues can easily overlap. That is why we tailor our services around the individual so that you get the unique care and understanding you need to help you on the road to recovery.
Apply for Counselling Online
Completing a referral for our counselling service couldn’t be easier. You can complete a referral form online on our website via the red button at the top of the page. The referral form will consist of a couple of simple questions so that we can get a better understanding of who you are and how we can help. This will then be further discussed in your initial assessment so please don’t worry if you miss something off.
We understand you may have other commitments on top of counselling so will do our very best to accommodate your needs. Despite this, we do encourage all of our clients to put their mental health as a priority, the same way we do with our physical health.
If you don't qualify for our Counselling Service
If you are seeking counselling and you do not fit within our counselling criteria (in Surrey and aged between 14 and 39), we are more than happy to point you in the direction of other avenues for support. We know that it is not accessible to everyone, but we do have a number of counsellors who we can recommend for private counselling and other organisations/resources that may be able to help. For more information, please contact us on email@example.com

Frequently Asked Questions
Even though you may not fit within the age criteria for our counselling service, we would still encourage you to contact us! We are committed to helping as many people as we can and can signpost you to other organisations and services that we work closely with.
We operate without a waiting list. A member of the team will be in contact within 48 hours of your referral being sent to arrange an initial assessment.
You are more than welcome to submit a referral for someone else, as long as they are aware you are doing so. Once the referral has been made all contact will go directly through the client.
We are really sorry to say that as of the 1st of May we have had to put a temporary hold on our outreach service meaning we are currently only able to offer counselling for clients who are residing within Surrey. This is due to an unprecedented number of referrals that have flooded our system as well as the fact that we were given funding to allow us to broaden our criteria, and that funding has now run out. As of yet, we have been unable to secure the same amount of funding and so we have had to make the difficult decision to put a halt on our outreach service and limit our criteria as before. This is an action that we really wish we didn’t have to take, and we hope that this can be resolved and reversed as soon as possible.
The Lucy Rayner Foundation understands the implications that comes with poor mental health, and we know that sometimes the effort it takes to attend an appointment might be overwhelming but please do remember that last minute ‘no shows’ do result in money lost from the charity.. If you are unable to attend your session, please let us know with as much notice as possible. We appreciate your understanding on this matter.
