Training, qualifications & experience
All counsellors are trained to diploma level in either relationship counselling or individual counselling and are fully registered and accredited or working towards accreditation with either BACP or COSCA and work within the Code of Ethics of these professional bodies. All training is fully validated and accredited. Any students are either on a Relationships Scotland Course or other accredited University counselling training. All counsellors receive regular supervision by registered supervisors and are required to attend Continued Professional Development annually.
Sexual Relationship Therapists are qualified counsellors who have undergone additional diploma training to qualify them to work with sexual difficulties and sexual dysfunctions. They are accredited by COSRT the professional body for this work. This often means working closely with NHS clinicians to achieve the best outcomes for patients.
There is also a very specialist service for sexual/porn addiction.
