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.

Areas of counselling we deal with
Stable Living Programme
At The Farm, we are passionate about your wellbeing and have developed “The Stable Living Programme”
This works for 3 stages of your recovery:
- You are unable to attend the full 28 DayHab Programme and want to dip your toe in and start building a foundation for your recovery journey.
- If you have attended the Treatment Programme, this enables you to benefit from a phased reduction in sessions to give you the support and space to embed your learnings and really define your relapse prevention foundation.
- You are well into your recovery, your toolkit is full of awareness, coping mechanisms, tools and strategies and you work hard to maintain the sobriety you’ve worked so hard for but the triggers are flaring up and you need to top up your tools and tips tank!
During the month you will have 10 x 90 minute structured group therapy sessions (4 in week 1, 3 in week 2, 2 in week 3 and 1 in week 4) with 4 x 121 sessions with your psychotherapist. This also includes weekly family support sessions and a year’s aftercare.
4 Day Trauma Programme
Post induction therapy has been designed to address the underlying issues surrounding the symptomatic disease of addictive processes. Developed by Pia Mellody; This Three day intensive programme addresses developmental immaturity that directly links to the need to engage in substance and behavioural addictions including eating disorders.
The concept addresses childhood trauma, (anything less than nurturing) which impact on day to day adult life. We believe that this occurs on a spectrum from abandonment and neglect to enmeshment and all about family systems.
These relational issues cause difficult and unbearable feelings of shame, pain, sadness and guilt which can cause challenging behaviours.
Upon completion of an intensive programme, it can become scary to think you are now being left to fend for yourself without any support.
We know that the highest chance of a relapse is within the first 60 days of completing your treatment.
We provide 12 months of weekly aftercare support (no extra charge) and by regularly attending these weekly sessions will increase your chance of long-term sobriety.
We understand that addiction can destroy not only the addict but everyone around them also.
We provide weekly support groups where you will understand the problem and become aware that this situation is NOT your fault.
The family support groups will enable you to build a support network of your own and also give you realistic and enforceable boundaries to put in place.
Alcohol and Drug Detox
Through excessive use of drugs and alcohol, a dependency to the substance can be built up. This can be exceptionally dangerous to just stop without seeking the advice of a medical professional.
We will complete an initial assessment to identify if a detox is required and if so, we will ask our partner Help 4 addiction to work with you to help identify a detox to suit your requirements.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is a one of a kind team re-programming event where the horse does the teaching and facilitators offer explanations and provide guidance. Activities are designed to develop problem-solving skills that encourage individuals to work cohesively as a team for positive results. This unique style of horse/human interaction is an effective approach to team building and leadership development. Your organisation will see results immediately because working with horses creates a lasting impression that helps participants remember the training for far longer than just sitting in a classroom.
Horses have a lot to teach us because they are actually a lot like us. Herds are to horses what teams are to people, and just as we need strong leadership in our workplace, horses require a leader that they can trust and respect too. Interpersonal communication skills are often lacking in today’s corporate environment, but horses can reveal the hidden dynamics of your team. They can hear our heartbeats and will react to the slightest changes within a group, which allows facilitators to find those “teachable moments” that will make a big impact.
This life-changing team building event builds trust and communication in a fun, engaging atmosphere that is collaborative rather than competitive. It is a powerful journey of teaching, learning, and understanding.
