About the team
We have a committed team of qualified and trainee therapists at The Harbour who are all professionally trained and particularly experienced in working with issues of death, loss and bereavement. We are dedicated to providing a high level of service to all of our clients.
We also have a committed team of administration staff who organise, fundraise, communicate, wrestle with IT and more.
Our Board helps to set and review the strategic direction of the organisation, making sure we keep delivering our high quality services to the broadest community of people, in a sustainable way.
Our Team of Therapists
The Harbour’s team of therapists are all professionally trained and registered/members with one of the following: BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists) or BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council).
As an organisation we adhere to the BACPs code of ethics and practice.
Our therapists have an interest in and experience of working with issues related to death, loss and bereavement.
We offer supervised placements for therapists in training. All our therapists on placement are undertaking in-depth courses in counselling or psychotherapy that are accredited with either BACP, UKCP OR BPC and they adhere to the BACPs code of ethics, alongside the code of ethics of their training organisation.
We work closely with the training organisations and have a rigorous selection process when recruiting trainee therapists. Whilst on placement our therapists are provided with close support and supervision from The Harbour alongside their training organisation. The trainee therapists we recruit bring a wealth of experience to The Harbour and are an essential part of the team.
We do not routinely inform clients they are seeing a therapist on placement however if a client has any queries about the experience of their therapist, please feel free to discuss this at any stage of your contact with The Harbour. If you would prefer not to see a therapist on placement this can be discussed at your initial assessment meeting. We have a clear and thoughtful allocation process which seeks to allocate clients to therapists who are best able to meet their needs.
