Counselling and Psychotherapy


There are several different professional bodies that counsellors and psychotherapists can become members of.

If you are considering counselling or psychotherapy it is a good idea to check the relevant websites or contact the organisations concerned which include:

  • United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy
  • The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • The British Psychotherapy Foundation
  • The British Psychological Society

It's worth finding out:

  • how the professional organisations operate
  • what qualifications, training and experience they demand of their members
  • whether they have a code of practice and ethics
  • whether there is a disciplinary and complaints procedure
  • whether they require members to have insurance cover to protect you if things go wrong

For more information, please follow the links to visit the websites.
