Tariki Trust - Counselling & Psychotherapy
Tariki Counselling and Psychotherapy Service offers counselling and psychotherapy for a broad range of psychological, spiritual and emotional issues.
Run in association with the Tariki Psychotherapy Training Programme, we offer the opportunity to work with qualified therapists or trainees. The approach offered by Tariki is broad-based and practical, and our therapists bring a range of skills and experience, some also having training in other models of working. There is a sliding scale of fees and we are able to accommodate clients with a variety of needs for short and long term work.
Our centre is in the middle of Narborough village, Leicester (near the railway station and junction 21 of M1).To book an appointment please phone 0116 286 7476 (if you do not receive a reply, please leave a message and we'll get back to you).
Training, qualifications & experience
Caroline Brazier: I am a BACP accredited psychotherapist with over 20 years experience. With a background in education and community work, I started working with women's groups in the eighties and have been involved in therapeutic work ever since. For many years I worked with a voluntary sector agency running groups for women with problematic relationships with food.
Originally trained in Person-Centred Approach, I now use an other-centred model which puts particular focus on mindful engagement with others and the world. Course leader of the Tariki training programmes, I teach and write on Buddhism and psychotherapy. More recently I have become interested in ecotherapy and also in spiritual guidance for people of all faiths and none, looking to find meaning and direction in life. I hold diplomas in counselling and group work, an MPhil in counselling and a certificate in supervision.
Other counsellors: We sometimes have other qualified and trainee counsellors operating from the centre who can offer sessions for long or short term work. Most are staff, graduates or students on the Tariki programme.
Member organisations *
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 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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
