*We are temporarily not accepting referrals for this service, due to an increase in demand for our contracted services. We are recruiting to meet the need and will update this message when we are able to again accept new Choice referrals. In the interim, The Black, African, Asian Therapy Network (BAATN) has a directory of therapists who may be able to provide support.
Under our Nafsiyat Choice service, therapy is available to people living in any borough, and is delivered on an open-ended basis – it is not time-limited. There is a charge for this service.

After we receive your application, we will set up an initial assessment appointment for you. This appointment is a chance for you to discuss with an assessor both your particular needs, and how our therapy might be able to help you. The appointment will last 50 minutes.
If the initial assessment is positive – for you and for us – you will then be referred to a suitable therapist, who will contact you to offer you a weekly ongoing therapy session.
Therapy sessions take place at our therapeutic centre – a bright, welcoming venue in North Islington, near Archway tube station. See our contact page for more location details.
Each session lasts 50 minutes.
Fees and Payment Methods
The initial assessment session is £60. Our weekly fees are then between £40 and £60 per session depending on each individual financial situation, which will be determined during assessment. We accept payment by cash or card on the day of the appointment, or via BACS transfer.
Full fees will be payable for any appointment cancelled with less than two working days’ notice.
