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.
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!
