Counsellors' Collective South West LLP
The Counsellors' Collective South West LLP is a growing organisation which covers the South West Region. All of our members meet exacting criteria and together we represent a remarkable body of knowledge and experience of working therapeutically in health-related settings. We are trained to work with all of the issues that present in Primary Care, the problems that people are facing in their daily lives, and our work is supported with references from clinical staff that we have worked with.
Some of us have done considerable training in specialities that we have a particular interest in such as bereavement, child and adolescent issues, carers' issues, and anxiety and depression. We have a community 'arm' - 'Health Works' - which provides training and psychotherapeutic groups to primary care patients and to voluntary organisations in the community.

The Counsellors' Collective South West LLP has been formed in the light of Government changes to provision of counselling and psychotherapy services in the NHS and can be flexible to meet the needs of patients, clinical staff and the community.
