The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) is a membership organisation and a registered charity that sets standards for therapeutic practice and provides information for therapists, clients of therapy, and the general public. The website, It’s Good to Talk, has been designed by BACP to help people find out more about counselling and psychotherapy, especially those who are considering therapy as an option for themselves or someone else, or for clients who are already involved in therapy. Those seeking a therapist in their area can do so through the website’s directory which enables you to find a private therapist based on criteria of your choice. Please note that the tool will allow you to freely select your therapist, however the majority of therapists listed will charge for therapy sessions. Some therapists may offer fee concessions.
