Anxiety UK has a range of services available exclusively to members, including access to reduced cost therapy. Above all, membership offers a community of like minded people who provide support and understanding for anyone experiencing problems as a result of anxiety.
Anxiety UK is the nation’s leading anxiety disorders charity. We pride ourselves on being user led, with many on our staff and volunteer team with personal experience of anxiety. You can get involved by becoming a member of Anxiety UK, thereby enjoying the below benefits.
Why join Anxiety UK?
Anxiety UK is a credible organisation with a long track record of making a difference to the everyday lives of those living with anxiety. The charity was established in 1970 and has won a number of high profile awards, including the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service for its dedication to those affected by anxiety.
“My name is Joanne and I have been a member of Anxiety UK for over 10 years. I joined because I was feeling so isolated and frightened and just needed to make contact with people who understood how I was feeling. I suffer from social anxiety and I needed to know that what I was living with, wasn’t something that was unheard of and I couldn’t be helped.
As soon as I became a member, I felt as though someone had put a reassuring arm around my shoulders and I’ve continued to benefit from Anxiety UK’s knowledge and understanding ever since.”
What do I get as a member?
If you are not satisfied with your Anxiety UK membership, please contact us as soon as possible so we can do what we can to make membership a useful, supportive experience. Anxiety UK is only able to offer membership refunds within 14 days, dependent upon suitable return of the Anxiety UK membership pack.
Therapy fee refunds
Anxiety UK does not offer refunds for first and last therapy sessions as usually we are able to pass clients on to qualified telephone or webcam therapists in the unlikely event that we are unable to provide a therapist in a specific location. A refund will be issued at Anxiety UK’s discretion, minus a 15% admin fee.
One example of a circumstance where we would be prepared to offer a refund is if you have requested clinical hypnotherapy and the therapist is no longer available in your area. Clinical hypnotherapy is not available over the telephone or webcam.
We will not usually offer a refund if you change your mind about wanting therapy, either because you have now obtained access to an NHS therapist, or for any other reason.
Please note that should your circumstances change, Anxiety UK is unable to provide a refund for the difference in session fees. However, you will be entitled to lower or higher ongoing session fees where appropriate.
