About me

About Now Therapy:

Now Therapy isn't the therapy of the past; it isn't stuffy, stern or one-sided. It doesn't assume you're "broken" or need "fixing".

Now Therapy is a contemporary, supportive and non-judgemental counselling service, which views you as an equal - a human being who's valuable, worthy of empathy and who's capable of change, growth and reaching your full potential.

​Now Therapy can work with you - wherever you are in life right now, whatever's going on for you right now - whether that means tackling difficult issues, working toward change or practicing mental health maintenance.

​There's no time like now.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
