Counselling and psychotherapy are commonly called the ‘talking therapies’. They can help people to deal with unhappiness, distress or difficult life issues in a way that is personal to them. One in four of us experience mental health problems at some stage in life, and, just as someone might seek medical help for a physical problem, counselling and psychotherapy at icap can help to deal with emotional problems.

Talking about a distressing issue can help to bring clarity to a personal situation, and enable people to identify patterns of destructive behaviour that can affect how they build relationships or the way they live their lives.

At icap, we are committed to putting our clients first. We have 13 therapists working at our London centre, 7 in our Birmingham centre, and a network of 21 therapists across the rest of the UK. To ensure that our clients receive the best possible support, all of our therapists are BACP and UKCP accredited, with a minimum of 3 years post-qualification experience. We use CORE (a sector recognised outcome measure) as part of the assessment and throughout the clinical process.
