About us

The British Psychotherapy Foundation is a strong professional organisation providing access to treatment for the public, education and training.

The bpf aims to increase public knowledge and understanding of the benefits of psychotherapy by means of information on our website, a range of public courses and events and outreach work in schools and other settings. This educational work will not only aim to inform the public about psychotherapy but will make available to the public perspectives and ways of thinking that will help them manage complex areas of their own lives such as relationships, parenting, employment and retirement

We have wheelchair access (ramps) and a wheelchair enabled toilet facility at bpf Kilburn. Please contact enquiries@bpf-psychotherapy.org.uk to inform us of your needs.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
