Ethics

When you come here for therapy you may be feeling vulnerable and fragile. Your therapist will be committed to providing a safe & confidential place for you to work together in, that will support you in building trust in them.

That’s why it’s a requirement that any counsellor or psychotherapist working at the Centre is a current member of an approved professional body that has an ethical code to which they can be held to account. This is one of the important ways in which we can support you – and all our therapists are committed to this process.

There are links to the two major professional bodies at the bottom of every page. Most counsellors belong to BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and psychotherapists are usually also registered with UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists). There are other bodies with ethical codes to whom some of our counsellors or psychotherapists also belong, such as GPTI (Gestalt Psychotherapy Training Institute).

This Centre is an organisational member of BACP and as such adheres to its ethical code.
