You can get 6 counseling sessions on the NHS which imo is not nearly enough for some people. I am lucky enough to be able to pay for long term therapy with the same counselor who I had the free sessions with but not everyone can afford it.
There is a charity in my area which offers reduced rate counseling but it still costs 75% of the average rate for a private counselor and there is a limit to how many sessions you can have there. Even that is out of the price range of some people though.
There is a definite problem with under funding of mental health services.
