The promises we make

bacp new eth framework

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I’ve always been proud of the high standards it requires of counselling in their working with clients.

The BACP has just published a new “Ethical Framework” for its members. Essentially it a detailed set of commitments that we undertake to maintain with and for the people who come to us for help.

You can read the new framework online here.  It is worth spending some time digesting its contents, especially if you are considering exploring counselling yourself as it gives you a strong sense of  what kind of treatment you are entitled to expect from a counsellor of therapist.
