About Counselling Rooms
Counselling Rooms CiC is a Community Interest Company, created to provide a choice of affordable private counselling and psychotherapy to as wide a range of people as possible.
Choice is an important factor in the success of counselling. Not all types of therapy are suitable for all issues, and research has shown that the relationship between the therapist and client may be the key factor in determining the success of the outcome. It is important therefore that the client is able to chose the person that is right for them, and who they feel comfortable with.
We have a diverse team of counsellors and psychotherapists with a range of skills and experience.
We are committed to principles of social inclusion, celebrating diversity and promoting choice and accessibility. Whilst we may work to different theoretical approaches and have different areas of expertise, we all offer a safe and respectful space for individuals to grow – embracing difference in culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, faith and religious beliefs, social background and education.
We are committed to ensuring that our services are accessible to people with disabilities and have a ground floor room that is partially accessible to people with mobility issues.
We recognise that some barriers to accessing services may be less obvious and we will work with individual clients to overcome any particular difficulties they may have in accessing our services. All therapists who are affiliated to Counselling Rooms offer a reduced rate of £25 per session for people on low incomes.
All our therapists are members of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), or an equivalent professional organisation, such as UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) or UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis), which set standards in therapeutic practice and monitor professional conduct in their members.
Therefore you can be confident that if you chose to work with a counsellor who is a member of a recognised professional body and adheres to a professional ethical framework, you can expect a high standard of professionalism and accountability. You can look at the BACP ethical framework in detail at: http://www.bacp.co.uk/prof_conduct
If you are looking for a counsellor or psychotherapist you can browse the profiles of each affiliated counsellor on the our counsellors page and contact them directly.
