Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling we deal with
The fee needs to be negotiated with each individual therapist, but is in general between £60-90.
We do have a limited amount of spaces for reduced fee.
Most of our therapists are registered with the major insurance companies.
The normal procedure is that the therapist will let you in and you then go straight to the consulting room. If however, you are a bit early we do have a waiting room. There are also many coffee shops in the vicinity.
Some of our therapists are bilingual and some of the languages we can offer is BSL, French, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.
