a little bit about
Counselling and psychotherapy are commonly called ‘talking therapies’. At icap we offer counselling and psychotherapy. We use the term ‘therapy’ to refer to all the therapeutic work we do.
Having therapy can help you find new and better ways of dealing with difficult experiences and distressing situations. Therapy offers you a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings. It happens at a regular time each week with the same therapist.
One in four of us will experience mental health problems at some time. Just as we would seek medical help for a physical health problem, therapy can help us to understand and deal with emotional problems.
We are committed to ensuring that people who come to icap receive the best possible service.
We recognise that many factors shape our life experiences such as where we were born, our sexual orientation, class, disabilities and so on. We take account of this in our work with you.
All our therapists are fully qualified and have at least three years post-qualification experience. They are all accredited members of professional organisations for Counselling and Psychotherapy. These organisations include: the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).
In all of our work, we subscribe to standards of professional and ethical conduct set by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
