Counsellors UK is a counselling and psychotherapy site designed to help and support the general public in their search for reputable counselling and psychotherapy help.
Here at Counsellors UK we are working very hard on bringing all that information together under one umbrella so that the general public can access the very best of the talking therapies help.
Counsellors UK was the idea of and is managed by a practising Counsellor who has 13 years experience in the counselling profession, has a degree in counselling and is BACP Accredited.
Other members of the team are either Counsellors, Supervisors or people who have experienced mental health issues and have an interest in this area.
Our search system allows you to find Counsellors based upon their distance from you and the issues that they specialise in. Trying to decide the right Counsellor for you is important so we provide a lot more information about prospective Counsellors in their profile sections.
We have a dedicated page that gives some hints and tips for finding a counsellor that suits you.
Counsellors UK values are based on a commitment to the standards essential for maintaining the reputation of our profession.
People in need of support can use the site safe in the knowledge that it is run by professional Counsellors who believe in appropriate training and continuing professional development as key factors in providing a safe and ethical service to potential clients.
No statutory regulation for the Counselling and Psychotherapy profession means that anyone can set up in practice and this could leave the general public vulnerable. The professional bodies are the organisations which ensure that only Counsellors and Psychotherapists who meet their membership criterion can practice under the professional bodies name and use designated letters given to them by said professional body. This should give the general public much confidence.
