HOW IT WORKS AND FEES
Rough Patch exists to support people who can't ordinarily afford the cost of counselling.
Our experienced, professional counsellors reduce their usual fees to provide clients with the counselling and support they need. In turn, Rough Patch provides room hire at a significantly lower rate than other clinics. This means counsellors can charge their clients less, making counselling more affordable.

To keep waitlists short, clients are able to access up to 15 sessions per year
If more sessions are needed, the counsellor will work with you to find longer-term supports
If you can afford market-rate counselling (generally $130-$250 per session), we can refer you to reputable practitioners in the area
We also have a mental health shop that sells books, resources, self-care items and other products with a mental health focus. The profit from shop sales goes back into providing more affordable counselling and mental health programs.
