Since face to face counselling is no longer available to everyone on the NHS, private counselling may be the only option for individuals who wish to start straight away and have the option to continue for as long as they wish.
Therefore, you may need or decide, to seek private counselling. The cost of private counselling can vary considerably from area to area and is based on experience and qualifications. A 45 – 60 minute session can cost £40 -100.
Accredited and Registered Therapists
The BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) have details of therapists who have registered with them as members. It is good practice for therapists to register with a professional body, such as these, although they do not have to.
If a therapist is registered with the main UK professional bodies, it means they have agreed to follow good practice guidelines, such as maintaining high ethical standards.
CounsellorsUK is now listing all reputable and qualified help from the main UK professional bodies: BACP, UKCP, BPS, BPC, IACP, COSCA, BAAT, IACP and including accredited and pre accredited members of the BABCP.
What is Employee Assistance?
EAP’s are benefit programmes offered by many employers. EAP’s are intended to help employees deal with personal problems that might adversely impact their work performance, health, and well-being. EAP’s generally include short-term counselling and referral services for employees and their household members.
How does it work?
Usually the employee goes to their manager and asks them for a referral to occupational health. The employee is then seen by an occupational health expert and their situation accessed and discussed.
The occupational health expert then writes a report with their recommendations to the employee and their manager. The employee usually has the option to see the report before the manager if this is agreed first.
