About our Counsellors/Psychotherapists

We understand how important it is to be assured that your therapist is trained and experienced - which is why we have a thorough verification process in place that must be met by each professional before we verify a listing for them. A verified profile will have a blue tick icon in the top righthand corner of the members profile.

 We have verified that every listed professional complies with the following:

    - Proof of membership of a Professional regulating body (e.g British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, please click here for more info)

While this is our policy for allowing individuals onto the website, please bear in mind that it is your responsibility to confirm that these details are still accurate as whilst we do carry out spot-checks we cannot always monitor changes.

As things stand, there are no laws in the UK that dictate a specific level of training an individual must undergo in order to practice as a counsellor or psychotherapist. Our verification process however, ensures that we only allow verified listings to appear for therapists who are members of a recognised professional body (and can evidence this). We adhere to this process to assure you that any verified counsellor or psychotherapist you contact is competent and has been trained to a specific level. 

Whichever counsellor/psychotherapist you opt to see, please make sure that you ask to view a copy of their relevant qualifications, as well as up-to-date insurance and professional body membership(s) before your first session. We strongly recommend that you do take the necessary steps to verify this information, as we will not be held responsible for any false information.

Whilst we use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that our policy is adhered to, National Directory of Counsellors & Psychotherapists is not intended as a website for verifying the qualifications, abilities, credentials or professionalism of any counsellor/psychotherapist listed and is not responsible for any member listed in the directory. Although we see relevant evidence of  professional body membership, an approved listing does not mean that National Directory of Counsellors & Psychotherapists endorses or accredits that counsellor or body.

We also have unverified listings for some individuals for basic information purposes. We do not monitor basic listings and they will not have the Verified listing tick.
