For Students living Independently in full time education

  • • Therapy session will be charged at £20 per session face-to-face, via phone or webcam

For Students living at home in full time education

  • • The four-tier structure for therapy fees for students living at home through University can be found here.


I can’t thank you enough for this. The Headspace app is brilliant and I can’t believe how much it helps to ‘take ten’ every morning. Now that I have the full access, courtesy of Anxiety UK, I have now started to do another ten minute session when I get home from work in addition to the one I do in the mornings. It is making such a difference to my anxiety levels.

Thank you again. This is a fabulous tool and a wonderful benefit to the membership. I hope other members are also finding it useful.

Help others by providing advice and support to those in need.
