Finding a Therapist in Loughborough

Written by Tim on 30 September 2015

There are many different options when searching for ‘therapist Loughborough’. Due to important changes that have been made to regulatory counselling bodies over the last few years it is now much easier to determine the level of a counsellor’s training and calibre. I have completed a Masters course in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy which was accredited by the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). However, training is only the start, and in order to remain a member of the BACP I have to work to very strict guidelines and undertake continuous professional development. It is important to note that the BACP is not the only counselling governing body and there are many other therapists in Loughborough who work to equally strict guidelines and training standards. Websites such as the Counselling-Directory and its good to talk, provide the contact details of many qualified therapists in Loughborough and across the country.

There is more to a suitable therapist than just their qualifications and experience so make sure that you meet them before committing to therapy. I offer a free assessment and a lot of other counsellors either offer it free or at a reduced rate. There is certainly no shortage of therapists in Loughborough, and with the new virtual forms of therapy (Skype, Telephone, and Online Chat) you can also look further afield. Remember to take your time and choose a counsellor that suits you.
