Professional Standards

Accreditation

In our work we strictly adhere to the requirements for ethical and professional conduct set by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and we are a BACP accredited service.  You can visit their website here: www.bacp.co.uk

We are members of the National Counselling Network (NCN), which is an association of BACP or BPC Accredited counselling centres which hold a common aim to offer high quality and professional counselling to their local communities.  In addition to being psycho-dynamically oriented, members differentiate themselves from other counselling organisations by:

  • delivering professional, affordable/low cost counselling.
  • being independent third sector providers.
  • providing an alternative to the NHS and ensuring that new clients are seen in a relatively short time frame.

NCN members meet, communicate, network and share best practice, particularly in respect of psycho-dynamically led counselling.

Confidentiality

Personal information disclosed to a counsellor is strictly confidential to the professional counselling side of the agency. Further details of our confidentiality guidelines can be obtained from our Centre.

Equal Opportunities

Our services are available to any adult (i.e. anyone 18 years and over) seeking help.  We do not discriminate on grounds of belief, culture, class, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. We also have wheel chair access to our counselling rooms.
