Look for BACP registration
Always look for a British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapist registered counsellor to help ensure that you are working with a qualified therapist. Book an initial assessment, see how YOU feel, take your time in deciding if you want to book another session. A good therapist will understand that this is an important choice for you and should not put pressure on you to book more sessions, until you are ready. The relationship between the client and counsellor is very important. The more safe, respected and connected you feel with your therapist, the more effective the therapy will be.
