About us

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.

Further information

The Counsellors' Collective South West LLP is a not-for-profit organisation.  Originally our members were all counsellors working in Primary Care in the South West. The 'Practice Counsellor' has, in most places, been replaced by Talking Therapies.  This may be, for example, IAPT or LIFT. Our main purpose now is to increase the availability of counselling that can be provided in GP surgeries.  We are not in competition with any commissioned service.  We are in addition to it. We do this through our Trainee Placement Scheme and seek to select the best counselling, psychotherapy and counselling psychology trainees for clinical placement in GP surgeries across the area.

We recognise that the provision of services for those experiencing poor mental health and emotional distress will probably never meet the need and we strive to help the best newly-training practioners gain the fully-supported experience they will need to become the best experienced therapists of the future.
