BACP The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
(BACP) is the main professional organisation for counsellors and psychotherapists in the UK.
The BACP website is a useful resource for all counselling matters, including details of the standard of professional training and continuing professional development required for a counsellor or psychotherapist to achieve BACP Accredited status.
Look for the It’s Good To Talk link for more about counselling and what to expect from the process while Find A Therapist offers a searchable database of counsellors and psychotherapists, including qualifications and fees.
COSRT The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
(COSRT) is the national specialist organisation for sexual and relationship therapy.
As with BACP, Accredited status is open to therapists with the highest levels of training and experience and the COSRT website is easy to navigate, full of useful information and featuring an easy to use database of therapists, their qualifications and contact information.
The EMDR UK & Ireland website is home to the professional Association of clinicians and researchers practicing Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Both articles and short videos about EMDR can be found under the What is EMDR? selection or if you would like to take a look at more detailed research findings then links to these can be found on the home page.
As with BACP and COSRT, a database of accredited practitioners can be searched.
