Billy Smith Therapy is a person centred therapy service in Cornwall. The service offers therapy and counselling in Cornwall. I cover an in-person service area that includes Truro, Helston, Redruth, and Camborne. For areas further afield I offer online sessions.

COVID has resulted in loss, stress, mental health challenges and increased waiting lists. I decided to do something to help. As a result, I am offering a coupon for 50% OFF online session fees for therapy in Cornwall – use code: COVID21 at checkout.

NHS waiting list for therapy 2019

NHS waiting lists: therapy and counselling

One person’s experience of waiting lists:

“I had a complete breakdown, was unable to work and was hospitalised. If therapy had been available when I needed it, I believe I could have been helped to manage the illness and not reach the stage where everything fell apart.”


The same report states that 1 in 5 people have been waiting over a year for treatment. But, interestingly, those waiting less than three months from assessment to treatment were almost five times more likely to report that therapy helped them get back to work than those waiting for one to two years.

These stats are not good. As a result, I am offering a coupon for 50% OFF online session fees – use code: COVID21 at checkout.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does therapy cost in the UK?

Private therapy costs may vary from location to location, with a weekly session costing £40 to £70 per week, on average. Many private therapists provide an introductory free session and discounted charges for students, job searchers, and low wages.

What is the difference between a therapist and a counsellor in the UK?

Counsellors work on a more immediate level, often focusing on a current issue affecting the client. Therapists work at a deeper level, exploring how the client’s personality influences their experience of relationships and their day to day life.

Can anyone call themselves a therapist in the UK?

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and verified by Psychology Today.

However, according to a BBC inquiry, no regulations prohibit anyone from practising as a therapist or counsellor in the United Kingdom. Due to the ease with which a person can complete a cheap online course, qualifications are frequently useless. Always check.

Self help therapy

Therapeutic photography can help people express feelings, emotions and thoughts that may be difficult to explain in words. But, of course, since you don’t know where to begin, you don’t. However, talking about a photograph is often a good place to start.
