Finding the right therapist for you
Updated: Aug 18, 2018
I would encourage anyone looking for a therapist to first consider their areas of experience and if it matches your need for therapeutic assistance. The recognised professional body of approved counsellors in the UK is the British association of counselling and Psychotherapy . When looking for a therapist I recommend that you look for this in their profile. Counsellors who practice under the BACP guidelines adhere to a code of ethics and principles set out by the association keeping both the client and practitioner safe and supported. We all have different needs, ways of coping and ways of relating to people, but most of all I suggest choosing someone who you would feel comfortable and above all safe with.
