SCPTI is accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counselling is an opportunity to talk to someone without fear of being judged or criticised. It offers a confidential space to explore thoughts and feelings about issues that may be troubling you, such as loss, bereavement, family relationships, work difficulties, stress, anxiety or feelings of depression.
Psychotherapy supports you to explore patterns of thinking and behaving that may interfere with living life fully or in your relationships with others. Our approach at SCPTI is relational and developmental.
Finding a Therapist
Please consult the lists of accredited and trainee therapists on this website. Following an initial appointment you may agree to work with your counsellor/ therapist for up to six sessions before deciding if you would find it helpful to work for longer. Sessions usually last for one hour and are on a weekly basis. However you can decide the frequency with your therapist
Qualified, experienced therapists will charge £35-45 per hour.
Reduced Cost ServiceAs we provide professional training courses in psychotherapy and counselling a reduced cost service is also available. This is with trainees in their 2nd to 4th year of training who are in supervision with accredited supervisors. There is a list of trainee therapists who can be contacted individually.
Alternatively, you may also like to consider having an assessment with a qualified therapist. This lasts an hour and costs £35. It would allow you to explore what therapy options there are, what ones might be right for you and gives you the opportunity to have a referral to a trainee with an appropriate level of experience. Please phone us if you would like to go down this route.
