Cogwheel Counselling

The team

Cogwheel is fortunate to have a team of around 40 dedicated part-time counsellors. Many of our counsellors are volunteers who usually commit to working for the organisation for at least two years. Our counsellors are professionally trained or in the final stages of their qualification and are able to 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 the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and/or the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).

All counsellors are supported in their clinical work by a team of qualified and experienced supervisors and by Cogwheel’s Head of Counselling, Esther McNeill, who ensures that the counselling is ethical, professional and in keeping with BACP guidelines.
