The practitioners that are a part of the Select Counsellors network do not pay a fee to join and membership is not open to all practitioners. How it works is we approach and undertake a mutual assessment interview with practitioners who have been recommended to us either by their clients or colleagues.
It is our wish to have an equal and mutually respectful relationship with our practitioners. We honour how important the quality of our practitioners are to the integrity of our service.
Some of the criteria we explore in our practitioner interview are:
Therapeutic Experience. This includes the amount of time the therapist has been working as a practitioner in either a private practice, public and/or organisational setting.
Qualifications. All Select Counsellors practitioners are fully accredited. Psychologists and Psychiatrists are registered in the state in which they practice. Psychotherapists and Counsellors have professional Association membership.
Areas of Speciality. We have an in-depth understanding of our practitioners, the areas they are most experienced in and also the type of clients they most frequently work with. We use this knowledge to match a practitioner with your needs in terms of the issues you are currently dealing with.
Work on Self. All our practitioners invest time in their own professional development. Most frequently this means they receive supervision, they are engaging in their own therapy and they are involved in ongoing development to extend their skills and knowledge via courses, self paced learning etc
Personal Qualities. Personal qualities include personality, style, age, sex, nationality etc. While these qualities are not criteria for inclusion in our therapist pool they are used as factors in making the right match between client and therapist.
Therapeutic models. Different therapists work with different therapeutic models. Some therapists have a strong emphasis on behaviour while others focus on thinking and/or emotions. We match you with a therapist who works in a model most suited to your issues and most suited to your own style of processing information.
