Our Staff Team
We have a friendly team of professional Counsellors who are passionate about supporting their clients in a therapeutic process to aid personal growth. Our approach to counselling is Humanistic, specifically person-centred. Within this approach we promote the belief that all human beings are experts in their own lives and that changes that are made through increased self-awareness can be lasting transformations, rather than temporary.
Our team of Person-Centred Counsellors are qualified and have years of experience working with various client/ client groups; some of the experience includes counselling in primary schools, secondary schools, community centres, specialist charities and privately with individuals, couples and groups covering a range of issues including low moods, anger management, bereavement, relationship issues, family breakdown, low confidence/self-esteem, addictions, domestic abuse and much more.
Counsellors are placed appropriately with clients, following a referral, according to their specific experience and areas of expertise. All Counsellors are committed to work in line with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) ethical guidelines (or equivalent), of which they will be registered/accredited members, this includes continued professional development (CPD) and counselling supervision.
We also have competent trainee staff members who are passionate and committed also to the counselling process and their client groups. Trainees will always be suitably placed according to their experience and will be studying on a recognised training course. Trainees are members of appropriate professional bodies (i.e. BACP or equivalent) and will also be committed to work in line with their ethical guidelines, including continued professional development and counselling supervision .
What is the BACP?
The BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) is an accredited voluntary register which qualified/trainee counsellors and psychotherapists can sign up to in order to ensure the safety of potential clients when looking for a skilled professional. There are specific ethical guidelines for good practice that professionals have to agree to in order to be a member of this professional body (click for more information). As part of this, counsellors must attend regular relevant training for continued professional development and undertake regular counselling supervision.
Our Counselling rooms are based in Basford, Nottingham. We also offer mobile services for businesses only, to include schools, colleges, care homes and others on a contractual basis (please use the contact page to request package details we will be happy to help you with any queries).
