Information for members

As of the 15th of May 2023, we have officially changed our name to the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS).

Our new and improved website is coming soon!

As a Training Provider, I highly recommend the NCS. I have found their attention to detail, expertise and professional manner to be exemplary. We were so impressed we choose NCS to manage and market our courses exclusively. The organisation of these courses has been extremely smooth and efficient, yet friendly and approachable. I want to award a special thanks to Kate and Jacqui for all their hard work, dedication and support. They both certainly know their areas of expertise and ensure the highest of ethical standards which I believe to be important In terms of training in the profession.

I am proud to be an NCS Training Provider and have my CPD courses quality checked by them. I have been heartened by NCS’s genuine interest not only in us as trainers but in our vision to provide practitioners with high quality CPD.

Kate Day - Director of KRD Training

Liberty Talking Therapy joined the National Counselling Society as a Training Provider in 2019 and it was the best thing we have done. The whole process from start to completion is well oiled and supportive. From confirmation of the receipt of the course to discussions on how to improve the material or ideas of what may also be included, the team at The National Counselling Society are amazing and know their stuff. Their ethos of providing training that leads to high professional standards fits exactly with our own which makes the support exactly what we need.

Catherine Drewer - Liberty Talking Therapy

At the Naos-Institute, together with the London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy, we were awarded accredited training status with NCS several years ago, as the only NCS accredited psychosexual and relationship training in the UK. We found the NCS highly professional in its training standards, procedures, and policies, as well approachable when we needed support. Highly recommended!

Bernd Leygraf - NAOS Institute

I have recently moved to NCS having been associated with another membership body for my whole counselling/teaching career so far. It was the best decision I have made. I couldn't recommend NCS more highly. I run a private counselling training centre and have recently undertaken the quality checking process for our Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills course. I couldn't have asked for any more from the staff involved in this process. The process of quality checking the course was also extremely quick. I am hoping to gain quality checked status for my L3 and accredited status for my L4 also. Highly recommended.

Kelly Porch - Northamptonshire Centre for Counselling Studies (NCCS)

Therapy Challenges provides Supervision Training Courses which are recognised by the NCS as Advanced A+ Specialist Courses. We have successfully run these courses since 2017 and during this time the NCS has been very supportive and helpful during both the initial registration and with re-registering the course each year. Their efficiency in communications is second to none, and their willingness to supply literature, application forms, promotional materials, etc. has made promoting our courses so much easier. Thank you NCS!

Ruth Lyne - Therapy Challenges

We have enjoyed a fruitful and long collaboration with The National Counselling Society, whose governance has been assessed by the Professional Standards. We continue to be accredited by them. The relationship has always been very professional and of a high standard. Everyone at the NCS is friendly, helpful, and organised. We greatly appreciate the support of the NCS taking a progressive and proactive role in the counselling profession and the challenges that come with it.

Our students and graduates provide us with excellent feedback about their experiences with the NCS. They feel they have joined a Society that supports them and provides high quality service.

Avy Joseph - College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CCBT)

I have found the NCS ethical, thorough and fair. I find the processes straight forward and easy to understand. The prices are very reasonable and the quality check from NCS provides a good level of reassurance to potential trainees.

Jonathan Lloyd - Calm Minds

As a training provider, we have found NCS staff responsive to our enquiries and helpful in talking through any issues that have arisen over the years as guidance changes. We look forward to this continuing going forward and having a continued good relationship with them.
