June 2023: The Help Hub's low-cost counselling service in West Oxfordshire expands


Woodstock based mental health Charity, The HelpHub provides low-cost counselling locally at a cost of £40 per 50 minute session. From a small group of 4 therapists, the service has now expanded to 11 counsellors and so has increased capacity from mid June 2023. The reduced-cost service is available to anyone over 18 years of age who lives within 10 miles of Woodstock.


Ruth Chaloner, chair and founder said “Sadly there is an ever-increasing wait for support in counselling. The HelpHub aims to help people access counselling within a few weeks rather than months. Sometimes this need is urgent and a long wait can be very hard to cope with. By providing low-cost counselling, we aim to provide a more accessible, immediate and affordable service to those who really need it.”


We can offer support for anxiety, bereavement, depression, relationships, work worries and much more, in a safe, confidential space, helping you to navigate a more positive path with support from our counsellors.


Please email Rebecca on for an initial appointment or for more information.
