About us

Southampton Counselling and Therapy Service provides psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy, and as far as our funding allows, makes this available to those who might not otherwise be able to afford it.

Psychodynamic therapy offers an opportunity to talk through your concerns and difficulties with a trained therapist in confidence and at your own pace. It works from the belief that experiences in the past unconsciously affect how we feel and behave in the present.

On contacting us, you will be offered an initial meeting, which is usually for an hour and a half. This is an opportunity to talk about your self and your difficulties, and for you to get a sense of how we work at the Centre and whether you think this will be helpful for you. At this meeting you will also agree a fee for ongoing sessions, and how frequent they will be - this is usually weekly but can be of greater frequency.  

Training, qualifications & experience

The therapists at SCTC are psychoanalytic psychotherapists registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), or psychodynamically trained counsellors registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

We have substantial experience of working with people from diverse backgrounds and with a wide range of distress. Though our aim is to provide long term therapy, we are also able to work with people for shorter periods.

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
