Home » terms and conditions
1. How this directory works
The directory runs on an ethically-grounded trust-based model.
Every therapist who registers contributes what is fair for their circumstances as outlined below.
The aim of this 'pay what you can' model is to avoid practitioners in the low-cost sector being under-represented to the public.
By clicking on the "I agree" checkbox on the site's registration page you agree:
- to displaying the details you choose to put in your profile;
- to co-operating with our checking of those details;
- to getting messages from us or potential clients related to your being on this site;
- to responding to those messages promptly and with professionally courtesy; and
- to committing to the obligations below.
2. What do you pay?
You must contribute at least once a year (or contact us to request a fee-waiver).
A common contribution per year is half your standard session fee.
If you persistently fail to contribute or request a fee-waiver, we may send you reminders.
3. Who is eligible
To be eligible for listing, you must be listed as a counsellor or psychotherapist on a UK Professional Standards Authority accredited register (or in Ireland, IACP).
Your profile will be displayed in the directory once you have provided documentary evidence of this, or provide a web link to your contact details on that register. You give us your consent to share personal data with your membership or training organisations for the purposes of confirming your identity and confirm that your status in good standing.
Being in clinical placement during training doesn't make you qualified.
You must have a recognised professional ethical code or framework and abide by it in dealing with us and other directory users.
4. Managing and removing your profile
Practitioner profiles are self-managed: you agree to:
keep your profile's content promptly up-to-date.
set your profile's status to 'hidden' when you're not in practice or do not want to be listed.
- only submit to the site information that you want to make public.
- respond promptly and courteously to any messages we send you
You may also request that your details be permanently removed from our records, by emailing us. If you no longer want your data to be displayed on the site, or have any other objection to its processing by us, please contact us via the details given on the site's "contact" page.
5. The limits of our liability
We try to make sure the profiles listed on the site are accurate, but you use it at your own risk.
Our total liability is limited to the amount you have contributed in last 12 months.
You agree to indemnify us against any claims related to your actions.
