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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Our Members have often come into this work as a second career and we have among our number a wealth of experience with ex teachers, lawyers, social workers, nurses, artists... and our trainees on placement are also joining this profession with a wealth of experience in many areas.

Alison Leyland is an Approved Counsellor with Barnardo's Adoption Agency, working particularly with post adoption attachment issues.

The majority of our Members are also experienced Supervisors

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 The 'Practice Counsellor' has, in most places, been replaced by Talking Therapies.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.

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.
