Herne Bay Counselling Service
Counselling or talking therapy allows you to talk about what is confusing or troubling you in a safe and caring environment. It can help you cope with negative feelings or thoughts you are having and help make sense of what maybe going on for you. We will not judge you or tell you what to do.
Some of the things that counselling can help with are depression, relationship problems, anxiety, anger, bereavement and low self-esteem.
Training, qualifications & experience
All of our counsellors members of the BACP and are either qualified or in their final year of their training.
Member organisations *
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling we deal with
We are a charity and therefore rely on donations to provide our service.
We do ask for a donation towards your sessions that is affordable for you.
Donations can be from £5 per session to £35 per session.
We also have concessions for counselling students.
Counselling sessions are 50 minutes long and normally on the same day and at the same time each week.
When you first contact us we will arrange a time to ask you some questions over the phone and then arrange a day and time for you to see a counsellor.
