About us

KACP are a team of Counsellors and Psychotherapists established in Kent for the past thirty- five years.  We pride ourselves in offering a caring, professional service.  We are committed to continuing professional and personal development.  We  have extensive experience of working in the NHS, GP trusts, Relate & Relateen, education, training & supervision, employment assisted programmes and private practice. We are able to offer a specialist service and work with individuals children, adolescents and couples.

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

Training, qualifications & experience

KACP therapists have undergone extensive training and are registered with (BACP) British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy or (UKCP) United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy

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.

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

Other areas of counselling I 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
