Where We Are
KACP service is centrally located within the county town of Maidstone (close to the town centre). We also have consulting rooms in the surrounding areas of Cranbrook and Tunbridge Wells.

Initial Assessment/Consultation
We ask you to come along for an initial consultation lasting for around an hour to look at the issues that are troubling you and what you wish to achieve (your goals). We will be able to give you an indication of whether therapy may be beneficial and whether a short-term problem-solving approach or  longer-term in-depth psychotherapy may be more helpful to you

Member organisations *

BACP

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.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Other areas of counselling we deal with

We have therapists trained to work using NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) approved therapies for depression, the anxiety disorders: generalised anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, hoarding, post traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety, health anxiety and eating disorders. We also provide EMDR for post-traumatic stress

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.

The premises in Holland Road Maidstone are fully accessible to those with mobility issues and wheelchair users
