“I had a complete breakdown, was unable to work and was hospitalised. If therapy had been available when I needed it, I believe I could have been helped to manage the illness and not reach the stage where everything fell apart.”

The same report states that 1 in 5 people have been waiting over a year for treatment. But, interestingly, those waiting less than three months from assessment to treatment were almost five times more likely to report that therapy helped them get back to work than those waiting for one to two years.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the distinction between a therapist and a counsellor in the U.K?

    Counsellors work on a more immediate level, often focusing on a current issue affecting the client. Therapists work at a deeper level, exploring how the client's personality influences their experience of relationships and their day to day life in general.

  • Could anyone call themselves a counsellor or therapist in the U.K?

    I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and verified by Psychology Today.

    However, according to a BBC inquiry, no regulations prohibit anyone from practising as a therapist or counsellor in the United Kingdom. Due to the ease with which a person can complete a cheap online course, qualifications are frequently useless. Always check.
