is a charitable
TCS is a registered charitable trust offering confidential counselling at an affordable cost. The service relies mainly on donations from clients to pay for the running costs which include accommodation, administrative costs, full and proper training for our counsellors and ensuring the highest level of clinical supervision.
Each counselling session costs over £40/hr to provide so we look to our clients to make donations towards these costs. We do not make a profit from our services and will never turn away anyone who is unable to pay. Some clients will be able to donate more than others and we recognise this. If, following the initial assessment you decide to proceed, the counsellor will ask you to consider the amount that you can donate in respect of counselling sessions. The amount can be re-negotiated as necessary taking into account changes in circumstances.
TCS is registered for “GiftAid” which gives us added income from donations made by UK taxpayers. Please let your counsellor know if you would like to support us with a “GiftAid” declaration.
Grants and Donations
As a charity we do , from time to time, receive grants and donations from larger organisations and from individuals. These generous gifts enable TCS to keep our fees as low as possible in order to offer our services to anyone in need of support.
TCS is registered with Amazon’s Smile charitable programme, this donates a % of your Amazon spend at zero cost to you. If you would like to donate to TCS every time you shop with Amazon, go to smile.amazon.co.uk and search for “Tenterden Counselling Service” as your charity. Once selected, as long as you shop from smile.amazon.co.uk, we’ll automatically be donated a % of your spend.
The prices on the site are exactly the same as they are on the main Amazon site. You can also change your charity as often as you like, should you wish to support any other cause.
