York Women's Counselling Service
The York Womens Counselling Service is a charity organisation run by women for women.
We offer low cost Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
We are a group of experienced, professional and very well qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists with a range of different training backgrounds and offering different models of therapy.
We all come from different working backgrounds, many working in GP surgeries, Schools, Colleges and in Private practice.
We all work with different models of therapy bringing expertise which should cover most issues and difficulties which Clients may bring to us.
We are all committed to offering Women the benefit of Counselling and individually we volunteer and give our time free of charge in order that all women may benefit from therapy which would otherwise be too costly or too long a waiting time from other organisations.
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.
