Cogwheel is most fortunate to have a team of almost 45 dedicated part time counsellors. Many of our counsellors are volunteers who usually commit to working for the organisation for at least two years or more. Our counsellors are professionally trained or in the final stages of their qualification and are able offer a variety of counselling approaches, from psychodynamic to person centred to cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). Many of them are accredited or working towards accreditation with BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and or UKCP (United Kingdom of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). All counsellors are supported in their clinical work by a team of qualified and experienced supervisors who ensure that the work carried out is ethical and professional and in keeping with BACP guidelines.
