Robert goes all in- April availability update

Progress continues to grow at a rapid pace and we are again having issues getting everyone seen. As such, Robert will be leaving his role in the school counselling service in April to run Progress full time. Robert is really proud of that resource for young people and his small role in it. But that service is now stable and well staffed. Robert is increasingly focused on full clinical practice via Progress’ private clients and collaboration with larger clinics and mental health services. This means that from April Progress will be open at least Monday-Friday all day and Progress should …

We are delighted that version 7.0 of progresspsychotherapy.com has now rolled out. Here are the key additions to enhance the client experience- Progress Store– Book and pay on the site.

To be certified in this way is a great point of pride but more importantly it gives clients confidence in the therapeutic ability and professional standards of Progress Psychotherapy. We want clients to know we take meeting the standards you need very seriously and meeting these standards is a priority for …

Ensuring high professional standards: Secondary accreditation.

I have transferred over to COSCA (Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland). This was due to them being the body that validated my PGDip so very aware of my qualifications. I was accredited by their assessment body. I now hold dual accreditation of both BABCP and COSCA but my BACP membership is expiring at the end of this month. This doesn’t affect clients rights. BABCP and COSCA will both oversee …
