About us

In the current situation with coronavirus Spiral continues to provide low cost counselling and psychotherapy, and counselling and psychotherapy at reasonable fees for those on a higher income. Sessions are currently being held on the phone or online and will transfer back to face to face when that’s possible.

Founded in 1995 we are committed to offering a service that makes therapy available to as wide a range of people as possible in the local community and beyond.

Spiral makes an ethical commitment to setting all fees on a reasonable scale. We offer an extensive low cost counselling and psychotherapy service for people on limited income. Unusually for a low cost project it is often possible to see a therapist for a year or more. In addition we have a team of experienced therapists providing therapy at reasonable fees with some concessionary spaces. Our service also includes complementary therapy, workshops and groups.

The therapists are from diverse backgrounds, and work with a wide range of therapeutic issues. We value and respect each person’s uniqueness, giving careful awareness to differing cultures and choices. We believe that understanding the marginalisation of people from minority groups is an important part of the therapeutic and holistic frame.

The counsellors, psychotherapists and complementary therapists at Spiral come from a variety of disciplines and trainings. What we have in common is that we all work holistically, honouring the interconnected nature of mind, body, heart and spirit. As well as considering thoughts and feelings, both of which may be experienced physically, we each hold a sense of something more, whether connection with nature, with energy, with shared humanity or with a deeper or higher power within or outside the self.

Training, qualifications & experience

Spiral has high standards of professionalism. The therapists all hold insurance and adhere to the code of practice of their professional organisations. Many have been qualified for between 5 and 20 years, others have qualified more recently and some are in training on recognised diploma courses. What all share is depth of insight, self-awareness and sensitivity.

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.

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.

Accessibility

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.
