Therapy for what?

Mental health issues. Coping with life ect, had years of none helpful therapy on the NHS

Sorry if I am missing the point but why should that attract legal aid?
Unless they are composing a report from the tribunal?

I have contacted my therapist, awaiting more information from her. Will this case still be open tomorrow or later depending on when I get a reply x

Will it still be under the same £31 or will it be at an additional price?

There is no extra cost unless you ask entirely dissimilar questions.
