WPF Therapy Open Kyle Low Cost Therapy Clinic

WPF Therapy Open Kyle Low Cost Therapy Clinic

On April 3rd WPF Therapy opened the Kyle Low Cost Therapy Clinic. The Clinic offers subsidised places for long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy at £25, £15 and £5, for people earning less than £20k, £15k or £10k respectively. This will make high quality psychotherapy accessible and affordable for local people on very low incomes, including people on benefits, students and those on very low wages. The Clinic is named after our founders, Bill and Benita Kyle, who set up WPF nearly fifty years ago. Some of the seed funding which enabled us to establish the new Clinic came from very generous donations from friends, relatives and former colleagues of Benita who attended her funeral last year and for which we are extremely grateful.

The Kyle Clinic operates from 10am until 4pm, Monday to Friday and clients will be offered a twelve month, fixed-term contract for psychodynamic psychotherapy, delivered to the same high levels of quality as all of our work. We are currently trialling the new service with fifteen places but hope to expand this later in the year as further funding is secured. The clinic can be accessed by phoning our Clinic Admin Team on 020 7378 2000 and asking for an initial consultation with the Kyle Clinic.

It’s really important to all of us at WPF Therapy that we make psychodynamic psychotherapy accessible to as wide a range of people as possible: long term psychotherapy is much less available within the NHS than before and private therapy fees are often prohibitive for people on low incomes. As well as being a centre of excellence for the training of psychotherapists, we want to be a service which is relevant and open to all parts of the community we are based in and this has been a large part of the impetus for the Kyle Clinic.

We have already had several referrals and I look forward to updating you over the next year on how this service develops.
