Fee Paying Therapy Services


Counselling and Psychotherapy 

PACE has fee paying counselling and psychotherapy service for individuals and couples.  

This is in response to ongoing demand from the LGBT community throughout London for counselling and therapy at PACE.  The only way we can provide this service is by making it fee paying. 

The service is open to those who identify as lesbian, gay bisexual or trans, to those questioning their gender identity or sexual orientation and to heterosexual family members dealing with an LGBT issue within their relationship or family. It offers short term and longer term work

We currently offer fee paying couples counselling and short term individual counselling.  From 21st November, we will also be able to offer both short and long-term psychotherapy and counselling.
