I am a Registrant of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).
I am also a certified member of EATA, the Institute of Transactional Analysis. This is a wide European body, which governs Transactional Analysis in Europe. I’m also a member of the (worldwide) International Association for T.A (ITAA)
I am a member of the Metanoia Institute, a psychotherapy and counselling training centre. They have an ethical code which is available to the public on request.
I abide by these codes of practice as a member of UKCP, EATA, and Metanoia.
It’s so important to choose a responsible, well-trained counsellor/therapist.
I personally would AVOID choosing a therapist who wasn’t clear about their ethics, their qualifications, or that I simply didn’t trust. I wouldn’t want you to do that, either. So, even if you don’t decide to go into therapy or counselling right now, please remember to look for ethical and professional therapists.
A good start is to
- Check their Qualifications
- Check their membership of professional organisations
- Don’t be afraid to ASK QUESTIONS. A good therapist will be happy to answer them. If they’re not, look elsewhere!
