Therapy offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things.

The counsellor's role is to work with you, to listen, reflect, help bring clarity and perspective and to be alongside you on your journey. By exploring your issues through the counselling process we believe you will be able to reach your own decisions and solutions. No doctors referral is necessary you can refer your self.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

Myth #1: Counselling is only for crazy people

Reality: Many people who attend counselling are bright, skilled, and stable people. These individuals are often struggling with problems in a specific area and seeking personal growth and development. Stressors and difficulties are a part of life for all people. Many argue that the ability to ask for and accept counselling help represents clear evidence of intelligence and sanity.

Myth #2: Counselling is only for problems that are severe

Reality: Most individuals seek counselling for everyday issues like relationship problems, stress, and symptoms of depression. It is true that counselling can be helpful for individuals suffering from severe problems. However, seeking counselling for problems at this level does not represent the majority of clients in counselling. Additionally, attending counselling when problems are mild to moderate can prevent problems from becoming severe.

Myth #3: Everyone will know I'm seeing a counsellor

Reality: Counsellors our bound by professional ethics and state law to protect your confidentiality and privacy both during counselling and after counselling ends. Only in extreme cases where someone is in imminent danger or a judge mandates release of counselling records can confidentiality be broken. Outside of these circumstances, information can only be shared if you share it or you provide written authorisation for releasing information. A good counsellor will explain confidentiality to you at the beginning of counselling.

Myth #4: Counsellors just sit there, nod, and stay silent and will it take forever.

Reality: Many stereotypes and depictions of counsellors in movies have led to their image being "touchy-feely", reading your mind, detached, or ineffective. Most counsellors today are active and engaged, using questions, reactions, and interventions to help you move towards your goals. It will be important to consider how active you want your counsellor to be and inquire about this when working to find a counsellor that is right for you. Reality: The length of counselling depends on the client’s goals, motivation, and the severity of the problems brought into counselling. However, most counselling is short-term.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
