Why Join Us - The Benefits

We’d be delighted to welcome you as a member of Counsellors UK however, you must be a current member of one of the main Counselling and Psychotherapy bodies (Approved Membership Categories Only).

The memberships listed have a number of requirements that we believe are essential for the safety and welfare of the people who use this website to choose a counsellor.

We are also the only Counselling and Psychotherapy directory site that verifies your membership, free of charge and personally with the professional body prior to your profile going live, which is the reason we ask for your membership number/BACP certificate number during the sign up process.

There are two membership options…

1. Basic Free Membership

Includes name, contact details, locations, photo and a brief bio.

Your listing will show below any paid members for your location.

2. Paid Membership - Small Annual Fee of £49
