Our Blues Project – Low cost Therapy service
The Blues Project is open for people who would not otherwise have access to psychotherapy because they are on benefits or a low wage (under £12,000 per year). Places are limited, and all clients are expected to make a commitment to come for therapy twice a week for at least two years. The psychotherapist will usually be either a trainee in weekly supervision, or a psychotherapist who has completed their training with The Bowlby Centre. We currently have a small number of spaces working with trainee therapists working from The Bowlby Centre premises on weekdays, and spaces with trainee therapists working in East Dulwich (SE22) on Monday and Thursday afternoons.
The first step is an assessment interview with a Bowlby Centre member. This is a chance for us to have a talk about you – your experience, your history, and your needs, and to then begin to think about who would be the right therapist for you. Interviews take up to 75 minutes. There is a fee for the interview, usually £35. The therapy sessions are £10 for a minimum of 2 sessions per week – a weekly total of £20. If you would like to arrange an assessment, please complete and return the application form to us by email or post (details in the application form)
We have traditionally also offered a service to match individuals with therapists who are Bowlby Centre members. This service is currently closed but we encourage you to use our Find A Therapist directory if you’re interested in therapy with a member of The Bowlby Centre.”
