FAQ 737
Are the therapies offered by qualified staff?

Wellbeing Centre therapists are all qualified and have substantial experience of working with people.  

The team is committed to maintaining high standards and subscribe to the relevant professional bodies and authorities, such as the British Association for Counselling (BACP) and Psychotherapy's Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

All practitioners are required to undertake Clinical Supervision with a senior therapist in their field.  Supervisors are external to the University and also work within appropriate professional guidelines.

The Wellbeing Service offers placements each year to a few newly qualified and trainee counsellors who are gaining additional clinical experience working as part of a team in Higher Education.  They are supervised regularly by senior members of staff who have trained as clinical supervisors. 

You will be asked at your assessment if you are happy to see a practitioner on placement.
