Training, qualifications & experience

Our approach:
Most of our counsellors integrate different models of counselling, adapting their skills and knowledge to suit the needs of their clients.  Our staff's training and qualifications range from diploma to doctorate level, and our counsellors may be UKCP-registered psychotherapists, BPS-registered counselling psychologists, humanistic-, transpersonal-, and integrative- counsellors, relationship therapists, couples counsellors, or CBT therapists. Some have specialist experience, such as in bereavement, or trauma, or arts psychotherapy (see our website for the full range of therapies and definitions).

Our staff
We have around 70 counsellors, all of whom have been carefully selected, are well-trained, and are properly supervised. They are all members of a nationally recognised professional counselling/psychotherapy register, such as those held by BACP, UKCP, BPS, or BABCP and their professional conduct is bound by stringent ethical principles and the professional conduct procedures of those organisations.

We also offer clinical placements to counsellors-in-training, so a proportion of our counselling staff are in the process of changing careers and are in their final year of training to be counsellors. Trainee counsellors are rigorously monitored by experienced and knowledgeable staff and are very well supported; you will usually be informed if this applies to your counsellor, but if you would prefer not to be seen by an unqualified counsellor, please let the office know.

Member organisations *

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
