About Us

We connect you with the right therapist. We accept only trained therapists on our site.

We have 1,189 highly qualified therapists throughout the UK working in talking therapy with experience in areas from counselling, psychology, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and many more. Since 2007 we have been helping people to make a confident choice of therapist, fully informed by the detailed professional profiles on our site. Our 'Find A Therapist' service will allow you to quickly search through the very best practitioners in your area to find someone to suit your financial, practical, psychological and physical needs.

Our Standards

RSCPP is different from other providers because we only work with trained therapists. We do not include student therapists on our site.

It is easy to assume that all therapists who are members of professional bodies are qualified. This isn't the case as students can also be members of professional bodies. When looking for a therapist on our site you don't need to worry about this distinction, because we only accept trained members of such organisations. Therapists that have been assessed by their body to be trained and proficient are known as 'Accredited', 'Chartered' or 'Registered'. This means you can be assured that any practitioner you contact through us can provide you with the best possible support and care.

We also spend time looking at the many professional therapy bodies, and assessing their standards and membership levels before we accept their members on our site. You don’t have to spend hours learning about this complicated area. We have already done the hard work, and found the best therapists for you.


Membership Types We Accept:

All our therapists are accredited, registered or chartered members of at least one of the following established organisations. Therapists are an accomplished bunch and as we work with the most highly qualified they will often be members of more than one organisation that represent different facets of their skills. You can find information on this in their individual profiles to help you to choose the best therapist for you.
