We want to increase the number of therapy and counselling sessions we offer at the Centre.
When we first opened, we built a sound-proofed quiet room to respond to increasingly long-waiting lists for therapy and accommodate any services and activities that require privacy.
We’re keen to expand the therapeutic services we offer from LGBTQ+ therapists beyond talking therapy.
Massage, reiki, art therapy, grief counselling – any ideas are welcome!
The therapy service you offer must include clients from our community.
You are welcome to bring your LGBTQ+ clients, but ensure that your service is reaching new people and folks from the Centre’s community.
How much it costs
We offer different options:
- Hiring fee per hour is £15. If you can afford it, we will invoice you for all the slots you have booked. Any fees charged to the clients will be paid directly to you
- For those new to their practice who cannot afford to pay space rent yet, your clients will be charged a base rate (£25 for therapy, for instance) that will go directly to you. Clients with the means who are willing and can afford to pay more, will be able to do so and any surplus will be donated to the Centre to cover running costs.
How it works
Our quiet room can be used from Monday to Sunday, 8am to 8pm.
You will have a dedicated Eventbrite page with all the slots available for people to book a spot.
Your services will also be promoted via our newsletter, social media channels and notice board at the Centre.
Accessibility at the London LGBTQ+ Community Centre
60-62 Hopton Street is close to public transport links including Blackfriars National Rail Station which is wheelchair accessible.
The Centre is close to other forms of public transport, including Waterloo, Southwark and London Bridge Stations and local bus routes. Use the Citymapper app to plan your route.
The Centre is accessible by wheelchair in both entrances. We’re on one floor at ground level.
Our counter has a lower level for those in wheelchairs to access.
Unfortunately, the space does not have an accessible toilet. We have secured funding to make the bathroom accessible in the future. We will update our website and social channels on this work.
Neighbouring Blackfriars Station, Starbucks and the Founders Arms all have disabled access toilets available to our visitors.
We provide an escorting service for our guests in wheelchairs to access these toilets which are less than a two-minute journey away.
Within the Centre, we also have weighted blankets, sensory toys and a quiet room. We also have masks and hand sanitiser available.
