Why the low cost?
It takes around seven years to train as a fully qualified psychotherapist. The training on a UKCP accredited programme, such as the MA in humanistic psychotherapy at BCPC has many stages.
Following a thorough theoretical grounding, and a sustained period working within a placement agency, BCPC trainees are ready to set up in private practice. This practice is developed slowly over time and is closely supervised by a UKCP registered supervisor. In this period of building up their practice trainees are able to offer affordable sessions.
This provision makes psychotherapy more affordable for those people who are not otherwise able to access private psychotherapy or counselling services. It also offers possibilities for long term work - something that is increasingly limited within the NHS.
