About us

Parenting 2000's Therapeutic Services deliver counselling to children, young people and adults using a team of well qualified and experienced counsellors who are all BACP members.

Our team currently consists of 8 therapists, some of whom work with both children and adults whilst others only with adults.  Those who work with children and young people have extra qualifications and are recruited due to their knowledge and experience in the field.  Within our team we have specialists in bereavement, neuro-divergence (ASD &ADHD), anxiety and behavioural difficulties.

We like to match our clients to a therapist that will work well for them and as we are a team we can offer real flexibility; a brief phone call can be offered free of charge to explore the needs of the client before we match to the right therapist.

Training, qualifications & experience

All of our team are fully qualified therapists and many have had previous roles in such things as teaching and social care.  Our recruitment processes are vigorous (DBS, insurance, professional body membership, qualification checks, references)- this should really help with feeling secure when embarking on a therapeutic relationship with us.

At Parenting 2000 we have gained much experience as providers of therapy and are partnered with the NHS IAPT service along with CAMHS.  We are a trusted organisation with strong links to the local CCG receiving many referrals from GPs as well as from schools, social care and family centres.

Within our team we are lucky to have specialists in trauma focussed therapy as well as play therapy, CBT, Compassion Focussed and therapy using art. 

Member organisations *

BACP

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.
